I’m taking a blog break but will be back soon

Good Day World!

As always, I appreciate it when you stop by.

Readers like yourself make my day.

I’ve always been more comfortable sharing my thoughts via the written word. I never was much for public speaking, although I certainly did my share back in the day.

But, every now and then, I need to step away from my computer to recharge my creative batteries. I usually travel somewhere when I do. This time is no exception.

I’m heading to Southern California to visit my father (it’ll be his 86th birthday on June 28th), and my sister who just retired from working as the pediatric oncology liaison for Loma Linda University and Hospital for 25 years.

My wife and I are flying because my chronic back pain gets worse on such a long drive. I hate flying, but in my old age I’m setting that aside in favor of comfort. Aawwwww the sacrifices we have to make when our hair grows gray/white, and our skin shrivels up like ancient papyrus scrolls!

While I’m gone, don’t hesitate to check out the links on the right side of the page.

You’ll find blog posts going back five years, and opinion columns I wrote for the Times-Standard newspaper up until last July. There’s also a link to one of my learning boards at LEARNIST (top right corner).

Thanks for stopping by, and I sure hope you do again when I return on Sunday, June 29th, refreshed and inspired to share more news and views with you!  

Time for me to walk on down the road…
