Dare I say that I learned a lot? I did. I am much more seasoned than I was a year ago. I am a soupcon more cynical, quite a bit more connected, and a great deal more grounded. I'm trying hard to gather what's left of my wits, square my shoulders, and move on.
So, dear blog, if I've sounded a bit preoccupied for the last six months, I have been. It's time to write more, reflect more, parent more, and get my head back into the real world.
