Making the changes to keep on going

It is interesting to me that there is great excitement and anticipation when I am getting a new phone or tablet, or computer of some sort.  I look forward to it and expect great things from it, but when it comes I soon realize that it is still just a phone, or a computer or whatever and what am I going to do with it is still the question.  The machine is exciting, it offers me great opportunities, yet I need to take the opportunity, and not just hope that the machine will somehow make everything different.

This last year has been a time of change, the radio show I have been doing for the last five years has faded out, the blog seemed to lose its steam, and I seemed to be simply stumbling into my sabbatical.

It is important to have a time to reevaluate, to reflect, to renew and think.  Like a coaching staff at halftime in a football game, it is good to reevaluate what is working and what is not and find ways to adapt.

I am in one of those times.

It is nice to be back in a place where I can think again.  I have many people to thank.
