Reset

The new year is a little less than a month away, but it’s time for a reset for this blog. Life events have kept me from regular posts and I plan to get back on schedule starting this month. The reset is mainly for me, also for readers of this blog. I’m working on articles and an interview. I hope to stay on schedule in the new year too. Thanks for bearing with me.
