Re: “Messina

Bravo Mr. Maddox! For many people who never experience adversity, these lessons you discuss and also share in your poem are difficult to face. Many will see them as unattainable or even undesirable. But I am a lover of Rumi--for the same reason I applaud your perspective. Value and meaning can only be accessed and made part of a person by taking the long way. I plan on framing your poem for my child's nursery.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Get a grip woman. You, like a lot of people, are competing for jobs that will often be below your skill level (you are overqualified). Why would a potential employer take a risk hiring someone who would become bored quickly or poorly leveraged? It doesn't make sense unless the job duties are far out of line with the compensation (trying to get a Mercedes at the cost of a Yugo)--there are employers who are going that route. A month long job search is nothing. Get ready to spend four to six months (at least) looking for a decent job, which is typical even in good times. It took me eight months to find my current job (that was three years ago). After six months of looking, I decided to try a different line of work and found myself surrounded by the inept and poorly managed because it did not demand strong education...and it didn't pay nearly enough for the responsibility (beware social service). Take heart by taking stock of your goals--long and short term. What did you want to be when you grew up? Perhaps it is time to revive the dream or better yet create a new one--'cause the whole "poor me" thing isn't working.
