Gee - where have I been all my life?

Well - I'm back.  Sorry it's been a while since I've showed up in this place.  When I was wondering what I could say about the quickly-vanished summer, it felt as though there wasn't much there that I could even remember, and I haven't laid down much of a bread-crumb trail of photos.  Lots of fun with our curly, snuggly dog, certainly.  A couple days of vacation here and there, mostly used in sleeping.  Reading/listening to some cool books (the star event was The Yiddish Policemen's Union - now, that was amazing).  

The main event has been another in the long repeated-earthquake-series changes in my workplace, but they say that's the new normal.  I have a new boss and a new office (which has, however, the same view over the playground across the street).

My colleagues are mostly the same.  My duties haven't changed much (some responsibilities gone, some added).

I've been wondering if external change is so exhausting because there's so much internal change that I'm not quite conscious of, in this year-I'm-pushing-60.  Sounds - and feels - so old, right now.  (No offense meant to those of you comfortably past that benchmark.)

I just did a google image search on the phrase, and the slogan below popped up several times.  I guess that's the next stage to contemplate.

I liked the Chabon book although I found it a bit grim. Hopefully this will be a pleasant semester for you.

Lovely to see you back again. Sounds like you've had an interesting time one way or another. Hope the next few months are nice and calm.
