Boy howdy. It’s certainly been quiet around here. Earlier this year I made predictions about a bounty of productive work. Then, my weblog fell silent. If you were judging from that, you might think that I found the work too hard, or maybe just got bored and moved on. Actually, something more amazing, and much more interesting, came into my life.
In February of this year, my daughter Elizabeth was born, and she’s perfect and beautiful and awesome in every meaning of the word. I’ve heard that some people lose their edge or get soft after they have a baby, but for me, my work and plans have become more serious, more meaningful, more important. Nonetheless, it is so much fun spending time with Elizabeth that work gets pushed to the side. I never realized before how quickly babies develop! Week to week and even day to day she learns and grows and changes, and I am so lucky to be in a financial position that has enabled me to spend time with her. She is so awesome.
However, my writing work is still out there, and I did just say that it is more important than ever, and I have been (almost silently) plugging away at it, with some substantial progress. Substantial announcements will follow soon.
