Have you seen me?

I backed off of posting on this blog when I got a job. Hard to believe that's been more than a year ago!

Professionally, I'm probably in as good a setting as I have ever been. Every workplace has its issues, but this place has had surprisingly few of them. I genuinely like my job and the people I work with.

I never dread going to work. I've had some situations where when Sunday night got here, I was not loving the slog ahead. Here, the workdays seem to go by really fast. It's truly refreshing to have such a positive work environment.

And this is after a very frustrating night last night! Today, that's just the way it went, and onward!

I wish this for all y'all...

Hello again

It's been a while.

The last few days have been difficult. Sick pet. Sick me (a fresh cold). Ridiculous weather... 42 and rain. A lovely, late fall day in mid-Spring. Other stressors.

Does everyone who "creates" something analyze it? I know I do. The things I write sometimes I look at and evaluate them. Did I make a point. Did I HAVE a point? Sometimes I think I'm just a hack. I've made money off this hackery, so obviously I have SOMETHING. But how does it rate?

Wait, don't answer that...

Unless it's with a heartfelt rave! But seriously, folks. I have doubts. The erosion of the last few days has ebbed me to a low place.

Maybe I'm just too tired.

Neil said "the days fly past til we lose our grasp..." I hate the speed of time these days. I never feel like I have enough time to take in what's happening. There's such a rush to get somewhere. But where? Is the destination going to be worth the days spent getting there?

I admit to a little fear. I worry about many things. Am I living my life the right way? Do I matter?

It seems like I rarely get out of April unscathed. I really hate April.
