“When the truth is found to be lies” – “Somebody to Love”, performed by Jefferson Airplane (written by Darby Slick)
Very tough times at work lately. So, in order to put some hope in my day, I went off and purchased a lottery ticket. I’m not sure about you, but for me buying a lottery ticket provides some glimmer of possibly better times to come. From the moment of purchase until the lottery numbers are drawn I think about all of the ways I will spend the money and how much better (I think) my life will be. That, of course, all comes to an end when the numbers are drawn and at best I win $2 or generally nothing at all. Been there yourself? But, I am a realist and I know that the only way I might better my lot in life (or at least my job) is to be proactive in finding a better job (but one can always dream about winning the lottery).
