THIS MIGHT SOUND CORNY, BUT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Finding a buddy to work with - part coach/part inspiration/part sounding board/but most importantly: YOU SUPPORT EACH OTHER - in whatever way you determine will help each other. This note is also a Thank You to anyone out there who has helped me, been an influence, guide, thorn in my side, whatever. Back to the buddy thing: over the past couple of weeks, what with the holidays, last day of work, whatever excuse, we got off our once a week check in. By the beginning of this week, I seriously had my doubts about the decisions I had made - especially in the creative realm. BUT, as we made our date to meet and review, it all came into focus again - my various goals, dreams, ideas. I don't know why it works, but it does. What a long, drawn out process of realizing I actually need people in my life - that human thing has had me stumped - wow, have I been crusty.

Okay, on to other items: I have to work out the dial-up internet thing at the cabin so there might not be posts for a few days, or a week - My other challenge: loading photos - LATER.

In the software world, they call it Pair Programming, and it is indeed an effective mechanism. Highly recommended.

Glad to hear you have engaged on your sabattical plan. I've done it for almost 3 yrs now, and haven't regretted it. Health is optimal, and have enjoyed myself. (Am looking at some new projects though; guess I just got the software itch again, but sometimes itches are good.)

I do feel the "time is of the essence" kicking in and have added to my plans working towards an MBA with a green slant - as in the economics of frugality. So good to see your name - always loved your comments on ERE and wondered where you might be . . .
