don't fear death

(no subject)

If you want to know the past, to know what has caused you, look at yourself in the present, for that is the pasts effect. If you want to know your future, then look at yourself in the present, for that is the cause of the future.

-Majjhima Nikaya

i've had a shitty day. two of my grant proposals were turned down today. one i was almost sure would be awarded. i'm on quite a losing streak with grant requests these days and we really need the funding! the one i really expected is to fund an economic development program i have been running since November with no funding. some days i really miss the budgets of the corporate world.
i have two other proposals floating out there and i am crossing my fingers....and toes. i've been thinking that part of the problem may not be me but that i am shooting for corporate funding in a weakening economy. federal grants intimidate me....perhaps it is time to get over that.
my goal now is to get out at least one proposal per week....surely my losing streak will break at that quota?
anyway....tomorrow is another day.
