As the recession of 2008 looms, Richard Deatherage faces the daunting realization that his 30-year drafting career may soon come to an end. With the advent of computer-aided drafting (CAD) technology taking center stage in 21st-century architectural design, his beloved art of hand-drafting with a lead pencil seems destined for obsolescence. However, for Richard, this isn't just a matter of losing a job - it's the loss of a passion that has driven him for decades. Yet, he discovers that the diversities that shaped his character and strengths over a lifetime of experience can still be drawn upon to find a new path towards fulfillment. In this inspiring memoir, Richard shares his journey of coming to terms with a changing industry, and how he tapped into the resilience and creativity that he had developed over the years to carve out a new niche for himself. With a candid and insightful voice, he shows how, even when faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges, one can continue to pursue their passions and find joy in their work. For anyone facing the upheaval of a changing industry or struggling to find their place in the workforce, Richard's story serves as a beacon of hope and a reminder that with determination and a willingness to adapt, one can thrive even in the face of adversity.
