Brilliant. I might do this sooner than later, feeling at a crossroads of possibilities myself.


A fantastic strategy, a gentle sort of safe helplessness unusual in our American culture. Good news: You seem to take to sandwich-running pretty well. It might not be a career (can you have a career in a single month?) though you do literally earn your daily bread, and there's honor in that. But it does address the other side of this: We need honest work not just suited to who we ARE but suited to the better person we are trying to become. It's best to have an occupation that helps you grow, but it's necessary to at least have one compatible with your own human journey forward. Too often the job defines the life rather than the life defining the job, but your Katzinger's gig is an example of how even a humble occupation can be defined by the person performing it, rather than the other way around. (I'm hoping to be there even earlier and that friends will accompany me this week).
