I think the time between this post and my last post is the longest period of non-posting since I started my blog nearly a decade ago now.
I’d like to say that I’ve just been busy, but that’s not entirely true.
Yes, I’ve been real busy. We are trying to get our house repainted, fixed up and presented for display so that we can sell it, and that’s a much bigger job than it ever should have been due to way too much neglect over the years. But we’ve been making pretty good progress lately.
And I’ve been dealing with a lot more stuff going on at work due to some high level organizational changes that are still sending ripples throughout the company.
But that’s not the truth of it.
The truth is that I’ve just been suffering from a lingering bout of malaise. Perhaps it is in part due to the failure of my own political ideology over the past few years, perhaps it’s due to encroaching middle age, perhaps it’s due to just being tired and wore out from being an employee/husband/father who seems to always be responsible for everything but rarely gets to enjoy anything.
Whatever. It’s time for a change. So I am going to push myself to stop being passive and reactive and return to the sort of aggressive proactive person I used to be.
Don’t know where this is going to go, but it’s time to rouse the dozing giant and see if I can’t still make some noise.
