Too many choices!?

Got a call from today a game developer -- a direct competitor to the one I'm currently in discussions with -- asking if I'm interested in working on a health game for teens, for which they have a TEN MILLION dollar NIH grant. I was completely up-front, telling them that, although no contracts have been signed, I am in negotiation with their competitor... but followed it with my philosophy that we should (and can!) all really be collaborators rather than competitors (the basis to why I'm not a fit at MS). Really -- when it comes to kids' health, we need to work together to find ways to deal with the health crises they face!

So add another piece to the puzzle I call my career! I'm at The Evil Empire now, desperate to leave. I have an interview on Thursday with a small online learning company. I'm in negotiations with Australian game team -- many hours, fabulous money, but the head creative guy is a canon (as the highly creative ones so often are) and will be a huge challenge. And now, throw this next little possibility in there. And somehow it all has to shake out in the next few weeks!

What I really want to do is write a long letter to Ernestine Bradley, thanking her for helping me understand my mom so much better -- two years after her death. Finished The Way Home last night... and cried.
