Preface to A New Start

Preface to A New Start

One day short of my 8th anniversary, I was laid off.  I find myself feeling relieved.

Voices Through the Whirlwind

Voices Through the Whirlwind

Just when I had loads and loads to blog about, I got knocked down by oak pollen. I just knew those trees were hostile. There is too far too much to tell, so here’s just a very quick summary.

But then… the thunder quieted a little and – between the soundcracks of the whirlwind – I…
