"Hi, Orion. I'm back," I said to my friend this morning. "Well, it's about time! How the hell are you?" Orion asked. "Overwhelmed with the added work of the new job. I have two full-time jobs now...with only one salary. I love the work, though." "Are you keeping balanced, grasshopper?" "It's been difficult getting used to a new routine. I have to get back to exercising, meditating, and being grateful for all I have."
