I can't believe it's been nearly six weeks since I've posted something here. Certainly my silence was not intended, but day by day it became extended as I dealt with multiple time-demanding circumstances. However, I did manage most days to drop by my usual blogstops to stay up-to-date on the latest postings. A big chunk of time has been focused on a number of time-constrained (and sometimes time constraining) projects including the local township council campaigns and recent election. In addition, our secretary went out on maternity leave early (but thankfully gave birth to a healthy baby) so my workdays have been a bit differently paced. All in all these are good projects and initiatives in which I am involved, but I have to focus more deliberately on making time to post here as well since I think it's important to be interactive more routinely here. In any case, I will try to get back into the rhythm of more regular postings. I appreciate your understanding.
