Hello, my friends. It has been a while.
You may have noticed that I haven’t been around much these days. It seems the new job is keeping me pretty busy. I just have not had the time or the energy for the blog, and, truth be told, I go for weeks without even remembering that it exists. I’m a little sad about this, but realize that it’s just the way things are going to be.
I was at a birthday party for a couple of 6-year old today and was asked how the new job was going. When I complained that I just don’t feel like I have very much time to do anything any more, I got a couple of blank stares and some silence. Then someone said, “You’re talking to people with kids.” Right, no sympathy from that crowd. But it’s a huge change for me (both having a full-time job again and having to have that job be somewhere else than my home office) and I’m working on having some patience with it all and letting more things go than I would have in the past.
And one of those things is obviously the blog. I do hope to post here on occasion in the future — like when I finally finish that sweater.
But I wanted to let you know that I won’t be around much, at least for a while. Until I can figure out how to juggle more things at one time. I hope to still see you here on occasion, and I’ll be lurking around your blogs as well, commenting while I’m on the train home from work.
Until then, here are a few more views of Stanford’s campus, usually taken on my morning or afternoon walk through campus to my office. Passing on a little of our Northern California blue skies to you!
