Life as a statistic

And it comes to this… I am now officially unemployed. An innocent victim of corporate downsizing. /insert mild freak-out here/ 9 ½ years at Positron and now nothing.

And then in October, Vox Sac is having a children’s exhibit and Kyle will get to be a part of that and show his photos.
