On friendships and resumés


"As you move forward in life, your available time becomes scarcer and you've
got to make decisions and establish priorities. These decisions sometime
hurt other people, but you must move forward and let time heal the other
person's wounds. Each new or renewed friendship is a seed demanding care and
you must make room in your life for such care, even at the expense of
waiving your prior exclusivity toward the wounded."

"At a given moment your average resumé reader,
while worrying about a number of his/her own personal issues, gets suddenly
force-fed with a piece of paper written by any resumé
writer who claims perpetual activity through dozens of action verbs conjugated
at a given tense reflecting a partition of time. The collection of these action
verbs, however, impresses upon the reader an illusion of time permanence, so
the writer's verbs are processed as adjectives by the reader. Your
average resumé reader perceives any resumé writer as someone permanently and
simultaneously agreeable, serviceable, knowledgeable, capable, available,
convertible, translatable and not much later... exhaustible."
