At the moment I’m gainfully employed and have been employed at least 20 hrs a week for almost exactly a year. But before that, there were some spotty months. And this year I’ve gone 4 or 5 weeks without pay at one of my two jobs.
(This is also why I don’t blog a lot anymore, or write poetry much anymore. Most of the time I’m thinking about one of my jobs or how to get another job or how to balance my checkbook for the month.)
