I've always viewed you as very strong. I know the 'unknown' is unsettling, but I am very impressed with the way you are viewing these changes as an open to change (positive change).
I am also impressed you are pursuing the art class as you have already been forced out of your box, but you are even reaching out and pursuing interests because of interest and/or talent, not because it's all you have.
I have no doubt you will land on your feet, but just want to say I admire the attitude and steps you have taken to make the best of your situation. You deserve to find the positive aspects of the changes imposed on you. Good luck!

The art class sounds cool, Jules. I hope the job search is going okay, but that you are also taking some time to just "be", as once you get a job, it will likely be sortof nuts for awhile...you know how new jobs are.
And RO, it does suck always being the strong together one..you and I and Jules all kindof had that similar "strong one" role in our marriages...while the other parties had parties, breakdowns, extended childhoods, and long journeys to find themselves, etc all the while relying on the wife to bail them out.
It does get old, for sure. I don't know what to recommend. Hang in there.

Jules, marketing and development (fund raising, grant writing) are the two that came to mind right away. I work in healthcare and know we are always looking for those grant monies, also lots of schools and non profits need the skills.
