Welecome to the sixth instalment of my short story collection I have titled, "Stories I Tell on Myself."  We have two stories this week that I think you will enjoy!

Story 11 Trying to Find Work.
Lots of people change jobs, more so today than yesterday, either to stay inside their careers or to leave it entirely. What is the best way to find and connect with that “next step?” Until I moved back to Baton Rouge in 2002, I’d changed cities nine times. I made those moves always using the same technique or formula. It worked for me. Doesn’t have to be the right way for all.

Story 12 Dream of Divorce.
Per se, I don’t believe that some of  the copious amounts dreams I have had are the “stuff of the future.” At the same time, some are very hard to ignore. Many things have happened that correlate with dreams dreamt, some voices heard, some advice given. In the mid-‘70s, in search of a solution, I had a dream which I reacted to the next day. It affected my whole family and worked out for the best. Like the song, is a dream a wish your heart makes?
