I guess that certainly qualified as an extended hiatus. I don’t think I’ve ever been off the grid for quite this long, and I must admit: I really enjoyed my time off. My kids really enjoyed my time off too, I’m thinking.
That said, I’ve felt the effects of my absence here.
Blogging regularly inspires me to pay closer to attention. It challenges me to think differently and deeply about the work that I do. It requires me to consider perspectives I may not have been aware of and invites me to learn much more than I ever would if I chose to hang out alone inside this field. It seems that I discover something new and realize something important every day that I show up here.
And so I’m blowing the dust off this little space of mine and settling back in.
I have a story or two to tell from my travels and about a thousand different questions swirling around in my head, searching for a conversation to join. I’m looking forward to getting back in the groove here.
See you in the morning!
