My last post.

This is my last post for this blog for the year, ever.
It was a painful decision, but I’ve decided not to post any more entries this year. I’m going to take some time off and reflect on where my life is headed and where I’d like it to go. I am guessing this process will take the rest of the year, at least. There will be no new entries to this blog until next year. Thanks for your understanding and for your anticipated cooperation.
Have a great New Year, everyone.
