I'll miss his dry, occasionally acerbic wit.

Slobodan, I wish all good things for you.

+ 1 to everything said above.

I haven't spent that much time on the forum in the past month, so didn't realise he hadn't been posting.

We are all wishing you well Slobodan.

I heard from him on FB. He's a very talented guy with a great resume and a graduate of Univ Chicago business school in finance I believe. If you know of anything out there, maybe your kids are hiring ;), let him know.

As an update: I'd been in touch with Slobodan before, and exchanged mail with him regarding the LuLa exit. This evening we connected again.

He'd like me to express his sincere thanks for the collective concern, support and friendship shown by you guys, and I can add (on my own initiative) that there's nothing personal involved with anyone in terms of animosity or anything like that at all; it's all about other, personal matters.

All in all, you're a pretty good bunch!

;-)

Thanks for the update, Rob.
I wish we could offer him a job!

Slobodan's got his priorities straight.  We'll miss him for a while.  He's cantankerous / persistent / talented enough, he'll land ok.

...... but the current economy doesn't favor the talented and deserving.

Doesn't this just bother the heck out of you the direction things are going?!

In the last few years I have seen a decline in the markets for anything creative...Music, writing, imagery-arts....I hope its my misunderstanding or lack of insight, and simply picking a small sampling....but it sure does look that way at times. ...Another thread.

I too wish the best for Slobodan, and look forward to his return, when ever that maybe.

Chuck and everyone else,

Thank you so much for your concern, kind words and best wishes!

I am greatly touched and appreciate it very much. Although not much, if anything, has changed in my situation, I thought I should stop by and acknowledge your kindness. Otherwise, waiting till I have some good news might have taken too long :)

As some pointed out on my behalf, my absence was not in protest to anything or anyone, just an attempt to concentrate more on my personal situation. In the meantime, I finished the jewelry project I mentioned a couple of months ago (you can see it in the Recent Professional Work thread, post #1317: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=75783.new#new) and, yes, my tax return. Now I can concentrate once again on a highly futile and depressing job hunting. Yaaayyy!

Many thanks once again to everyone.

It's not job hunting you want to be at Slobodan its change of career hunting that you need to concentrate on, and there's a big difference.  I was laid off from the day job nigh on three years ago and took the view the view that nobody round here was going to employ me as left my forties so I had better sort my own sh*t out, not that I wanted to go back to what I was doing anyway. So I picked up on something that I had been doing for pin money and developed it further and now I am beginning to see some light again. You're an intelligent fellow and I don't doubt that you have a few more strings to your bow so it's now a question of bringing one to the fore and doing something with it.

I won't say any more at this point as it can all sound a bit glib but one piece of advice I was given and which I rejected at first was 'change your friends'. I don't mean dump on people but just try moving on, loosen some ties and make new ones. Something in it worked for me.

Good luck anyway.

Slobodan,

It's good to hear from you.
If you want a dozen or more letters of recommendation for whatever you want to try next, you can probably get a bunch from your pals at LuLa, just by asking.

Good luck, and I hope you get some really good news before too long.

Eric

As I just said on the first thread I hit with my laptop --on the road -- welcome back Slobodan.
