Out in Left Field (waiting for a fly ball)

November 3, 2005


I’m becoming a professional at job interviews. I have one downtown at 3:00 today, and although my nerves are more active than usual, I’m getting used to this routine. This will be my eighth job interview since graduation, and I have one lined up for tomorrow as well. Altogether, I will have had three interviews this week alone – surely something will come of it.

In that same breath, I regretted the words I had just formed.

“I read the news today, oh boy…”

The last great frontier has been tamed and stripped of its integrity. The hunt is on for an endangered species that lives underground, undisturbed yet all too detectable. Wildlife preserves yield to rising fears – all deals are off when oil outweighs global longevity. We are one step closer to finalizing our impact on God’s polluted earth. –for Alaska—
