So my first action is to apologize for being away so long, for anyone that actually takes the time to read and noticed I was gone. Early March was defined by the death of a friend; after that, I was selected for a new job and Spring became an exercise of working with the family to help (1) purge and (2) pack up the house prior to our move, while at the same time being sent to various venues around the U.S. to get trained up on my new job before I actually took over. This was followed by the actual move across the country itself (toting kids, pets and wine along in our wake), living in a hotel for a month with aforementioned kids and pets (the wine quickly disappeared I assure you), moving into our new house and unpacking (still an ongoing chore), and settling into my new job, with its much greater responsibilities but also much bigger toys to learn and play with!
Also, to be honest, I didn’t find much out there inspirational – or perhaps demotivational – enough to drive me to the computer to post, since it’s all been the same old crap: attack ad after attack ad; all words and no substance; and all this with months to go before the elections.
But perhaps now, with a possible change in government imminent and the candidates coming down to the wire, it’s time to jump back into the fray.
