A Brief Update


I should provide a brief personal update for the interval from my last post.

When I wrote that post, I didn’t intend to quit posting here altogether: I intended to put on record only that I’d try to cover items of real interest and import. I was simply trying to affirm that writing here was important to me for some reason I still do not understand. Then, life set in.

About three weeks ago, a new job opportunity appeared that was highly attractive and quite unexpected, I think for my new employer as well as for me. Anyway, a job was offered and accepted. Then there was the typical three week transition from old employer to new with the training of prospective replacement, “in-processing” to the new company and a highly accelerated introduction to the new job. It has been a hectic, almost dizzying three weeks.

Now comes a period of travel, two days this week in Norfolk, Virginia, then two weeks in, are you ready, Germany. I know, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. I’ve never been to Germany so I am curious to visit and see what the country is like. I hope I am able to meet the physical challenge of the trip, but the fact of a somewhat extended stay should mitigate the rigors of traveling, which are quite real for me now that I am a little advanced in years. I think the Norfolk trip will actually be harder, it coming just before the flight to Germany is a bit daunting, I have to admit. In any case, I am looking forward to seeing a new country.

I hope to be able to get a couple of posts in over the next three weeks, especially a picture or two from Germany, but just not sure what the schedule will bring in terms of internet connections.
