It is time to make a living via poetry. Well . . . sort of.
I have two weeks left at my full-time job at the rock quarry before I get laid off. I teach part-time for meager wages at two colleges, and it’s not enough to live on. I am excited about not driving to Tulsa 3 days a week, but I am a bit scared about the prospect of supporting myself. I will have more time for museum enterprises, which have never cost much money anyway. The building was donated by my parents, the materials that went into creating the exhibits and displays were found materials or donated or bought on the cheap at yard sales. All the labor that has gone into the museum has been the loving work of friends and family.
My hope is to find a few part-time gigs, including the writing I am now doing for a few websites and magazines to help pay my bills. Of course, my preference is to do work that is in my field of expertise:
I will probably do some substitute teaching. I would also like to be the odd-job-woman-about town. Here are some things I am good at and can do:
I will be available every day except Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30-2:30. If you need a little part-time help here and there and live close to Locust Grove, let me know! 918-864-9152
