The poems and typewriter-thoughts of Mark Petersen
So a typewriter might be appearing on the front desk of a small hotel very soon? All the best with the writing.
Congratulations on the job.
best of luck in your endeavors!
I know the feeling. Stay strong and go where the heart leads (:
This sounds hopeful and promising. Type on!
There's nothing like a bit of positive reinforcement (in this case from being a valued employee) to put a spring in your step and great things in your sights, however intangible. The future's bright!
Congrats on the job!! It's not easy out there in this economy -- and that's coming from a guy who is still paying off his master's degree but works in retail HR (oh the horror!) just to make ends meet. -- In addition to the income, jobs are usually great sources for writing material ;) Cheers!
Great to hear from you again - I/we were missing you! I too have been mostly out of work since December when my seasonal regular job ends - till March or April. I used to have this thought that to have time off to "do my own thing" and sleep in till..... would be great, but!!! This winter has been tough on my self worth and my heart. I too am a creative, and it's one of the first things to go when times get tough - work wise. I've frankly been so grateful for my new found "friends and buddies" in the typosphere! The hotel business is not a bad place to be..... lots of exposure for great and cool people like you, I'm sure you'll find your place, and that great novel!! Good luck, and keep sharing!
Thanks for the encouragement. All we can ever do is our best right? And endure.
I too like typewriters. Was just on a site where someone wanted to know how to get rid of their "old typewriter smell". I didn't realize there was a better scent, that and old books. About your Adler w/ the script type - nice find - but where did you find the serial #. My Adler Universal 20 has a little sticker, but # don't match any on the data base. # cast into frame don't either. P.S. found mine along the street, waiting for garbage pick up. Just setting there, w/ the grey plastic dustcover keeping it dry. Any help welcome. Mike
The serial number is under the carriage on the right side. I see it twice on mine on two different parts right by each other.
Yeah Mike, my Universal also has it under the carriage on the right on the flat metal cover over the works. Good luck
Yes Mark, "our best in the moment" and endure - and I've realised that there's always something for me to learn about myself in those tough moments, as crappy as they may seem. Plus as a "creative", we can channel that energy back into our art, whether it be writing, painting, dance, whatever - and we're better for it.
