The chef asked me to take some winter snapshots. So, if you are interested in what an early winter looks like in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada:
I was downsized by my employer a little under 2 weeks ago. Soon after that, I founded Clever Glutton Media and began to re-climb the corporate ladder. Today, I stand before you as the CEO of CGM and effective immediately, I will be taking a sabbatical year* to attend Glutton University. Some of the subject I will be studying at Glutton U: Music Theory and Composition, Digital Sound Manipulation, Macromedia Flash MX, Photographic Experimentation and Literature.
*Actual length of sabbatical may vary.
On the literature front, I read Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's last night. Having never seen the movie, I didn't really know what to expect. What I discovered was a truly engrossing short story. The characters drew me into their world, their joy, their pain. Please tell me they didn't give the movie a typical Hollywood ending!
