back to the Smoke

the journal of Michael Werneburg

twenty-five years and one million words

Toronto, 2002.08.31

Back in T/O. And it's hot, hazy, and smoggy. Who'd have guessed. No matter, I hear there are jobs here. Actually, I hear the situation's the worst it's been in 20+ years, but that it's still better than in Vancouver. One unexpected beneficial side-effect of my time in Australia; I can now do a 5 hour flight in relative comfort. Once you've crossed the Pacific a few times, any intra-continental flight seems like fun. Well, not fun per se, but immensely more tolerable.

My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there.
