Not for long.

Numbers are really down, even in the 20 years I have been here. The abuse scandals, a poorly attended Papal visit, growing number of atheists and a huge switch to the evangelical churches (the pandemic causing, thieving kind).

But it is interesting. The Catholic church is still part of the glue that binds high level Chilean society. Those that maintain their wealth on the back of the toil and sweat of most Chileans go religiously to church every Sunday or worship in their private chapels.

Yet, the evangelical churches worshiping the same God, and using the same book are referred to as cults in Chilean TV news.

I will have to look up what that means.

I had a picture of my grandmother in an old silver frame that needed a little maintenance so took it apart and behind the pic was a print, in Spanish, of Generalisssimo Haig, Jeff del erjcito
Amused me for some reason. My grandad sailed back to fight in WW1 and then spent 2 years in a POW camp, mainly eating carrots

The word they use to describe them at Celtic Park is a bit similar to that one actually.

Hedgehog, you called it. In a lot of ways I was pushing it towards this outcome. And my perspective on life and where and how I want to live it as been in self debate these past 3 months.

One door closes and many others open.

I remember when you were hanging on until the right time to retire. I am too young for that, but I have some thinking to do.

Oh and first and foremost..no problems financially.

More later.
Enjoy that wine, Peter.

As always, it is the manner of dismissal that sticks in the craw.

I could just walk away, but I don't want to accept them linking my dismissal to a vague suggestion of poor performance without comparative evidence to back that up.
Really is not nice to get the news.

I suppose it is a situation where you are not going to change their minds but you can walk away with your head held high with a payoff and your Teacher of the Year award to boot.

I'm sure this would be attractive to future employers will be their loss!

I don't plan to work for anyone else - except the chap I have worked for on and off the last dozen years or so.

Avoid the politics and working for Chileans.

Teaching business or other individuals, I don't have to suck it up. I get the payments in advance in segments, and if we don't gel we move on.

Sucking it up, chips away at the soul.

I could get it professionally trimmed, but getting beard work done without a mask is not going to happen for a while.
