At last, some news on the guest blogger front!
It’s been a month since we lost Fritzi, and I want to apologize for being slow to start the search for the next guy. (Or “gal,” of course, but I think we can agree that guy is inclusive of anyone and anything, right?) Life has been intervening, as usual, and there was a certain amount of fatigue from the whirlwind tenure of Fritzi.
I haven’t been looking forward to all the interviewing and evaluating and decision-making. Having a guest blogger was supposed to make things easier. I want to sit back and let them do the work. The hiring process is just more work for me and tedious work at that. You wouldn’t …
When the ebbing tide retreats
Along the rocky shoreline,
It leaves a trail of tidal pools
In a short-lived galaxy.
Each microcosmic planet
A complete society.
A simple kind mirror
To reflect upon our own.
All the busy little creatures
Chasing out their destinies.
Living in their pools,
They soon forget about the sea…
– Neil Peart, “Tide Pools”
