The job search continues...

Two more applications went out today for positions in a couple of Canadian universities. Both are for jobs in music departments, one without any research requirement (a teaching-only non-tenure track position which looks alright) and another for an enticing position as a post-1950s specialist, with an emphasis in popular music. Here's hoping something comes up. I have my sights on a few more positions that I will be applying for in the next month and a half or so.

I'm plugging away at that Feist paper I mentioned previously. It's coming together well, I think.

I've been listening recently to Mute Math, dredg and Earthsuit (many thanks to M. in Ottawa for the first couple of suggestions).

There are a lot of things going on at A.'s work, which, coupled with my insecurity and the unknown future that we face, is making things difficult. I'll leave it at that. Thankfully we have faith in Christ, which we are relying on.

Any Atheists or those of other religious persuasion who might be offended or bothered by the last comment, feel free to ignore it. I've found that it isn't really easy to believe something, "to have faith that things are going to work out." It really isn't a "crutch," as many used to tell me when I was younger. It's hard to trust in God, for instance. It's something that I struggle with constantly. But, I guess, I choose to struggle with it.

Okay, religious rant over.

I agree with you N. and A., I trust in God also for the solution to "our" problem - even though He says "His yoke is easy" at times it is difficult to stand firm and steady, but past experience, our own and others, has shown us it is the only way, in time we will stand back and see His glory. We are praying for you both and await good news at our Friday nite rendez-vous. Love you, c and d

It's so hard to trust when the answers aren't coming quickly. Nevertheless, we have faith for a reason and you both have my prayers, as always.
