Hella Buchheim is a story-teller. She has landed a vocation that meets anyone’s criteria for a great job: she sets her own hours, works with fabulous characters and makes a little money. If she had health insurance, it would be perfect. On her website, Hella writes, “Most writers lament the road not taken. It brings us into a loop of should-as, could-as, would-as. But I want to celebrate the road taken.” Watching Hella write her own story and considering that all of us have loops of shoulda-coulda’s, I got to thinking that a really great career is the one that capitalizes on the road taken. Every connection, every hobby, everything we do to relax comes out of choices we make on our own behalf: The road taken.
