Where's Howard?


I know posting here and communication from me generally has been greatly reduced of late. I thought I should explain briefly.

Sadly, my younger brother died in mid-December after a short, fierce illness. I got to visit him several times in Alaska in the months preceding, and of course was there with family afterward for the services and other arrangements.

This all takes time and, I discover, considerable emotional energy, too. I've been at work since, but honestly haven't been as focused or energetic as I'd like. I expect that to change, and I intend to be more in the flow.

Thanks to those who have mentioned missing the posts; that's gratifying. Look for more in the future.


  1. I'm sorry for your loss. :(

    just lost my dad to lung cancer, so know how you feel. watching someone die quickly, or someone who is run die, can knock the wind out of your sails. It also can help in clarifying what life is really all about. It also helps you realize you, me, we all are going to face a similar fate eventually and all the mundane things we bitch and moan about on a daily basis have no relevance when we lay dying. Only those who we love matter at that point. All the crap that goes on at work, all the politics, what house we live in, what car we drive, what we wear means nothing. Only love endures.
