I now realize why I had a sudden interest in yoga blogging — it gave me a good excuse for holding off on doing my taxes this year. I always think of Federal tax returns as a disquieting time, stressful and bitter. Part of the resistance is that I do not keep my records up to date so I have to go back and reconstruct the year so that I can recall my deductions, expenses and other details. Also the tax treatment given U.S. residents working at the Organization of American States is far from straightforward. It took me five years just to get a handle on it. Well, I am down to the last weekend so there’s no wiggle room now. So blog entries will be minimal until I get done.
