I know I still have a lot to get you caught up on and I’ll get there. I could really use your positive thoughts today though, as this morning I will be turning in my letter of application for the Master Printer Training Program at Tamarind, year two of their education program. This basically amounts to a paid internship working on actual publishing jobs under the tutelage of Master Printer Bill Lagattuta.
We found out last week from director Marjorie Devon that they only have funding to keep one lucky person this year out of eight of us, so it’s and an extremely covetted position.
I’ve spent a good deal of time these last few days reflecting on my experence this year and what a position like this would mean to me in my career as a printer and although a ‘YES’ would mean the world to me I am ultimately at peace and will carry on as always.
My letter is written and ready to hand in. I’m hoping you will all send me some positive energy. I could use.
We will receive results next Friday… so I’ll let you know one way or the other.
Crossing fingers and toes…. now.
