Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

Yesterday: Laid off by my employer.

Tomorrow: My first-ever trip to Hawaii.

In between: Completely reacquainted myself with the unstoppable combined powers of the dharma, meditation, and the deep and abiding love of many wonderful people who care for me so much it’s beyond humbling.

New chapters await. An overdue reshuffling of priorities. Already, this soon, excitement is overtaking fear …

Sorry to hear about that, but big changes always turn out for the best. Acquaint yourself with the joys of severance pay, unemployment pay, and waking up whenever you want. And enjoy Hawaii!

One day you will look back on this and say, "That was the best thing that ever happened to me." Hawaii is going to be great...enjoy the sun and surf!
