With financial returns not guaranteed or even sought at present.
That is my new reality. I told my boss in a phone conversation this am that I plan to resign today.
I attempted to resign yesterday. I went into her office, paperwork in hand, but she was away and I chose not to wait.
On the day prior to my departure to Missouri, she called me to ask me to work the next day. Since I was leaving for Missouri, I could not. I did not tell her then that I was dressed and ready to travel to her office to resign that day. After I hung up, I thought that perhaps it would be rather cold to resign when she just had begged me to come in.
But this morning I told my boss I had found other work to do. Absolutely that is so. I was up at five o'clock scribbling the morning pages.
Headed out now to hand in the resignation and pick up the book by Raymond Carver I reserved yesterday, among other things that must be done.
