Time has flown by this week. It’s Friday and Thanksgiving has come and gone, but not without an opportunity to recognize that I’ve got a lot to be grateful for. Both my kids were home for dinner and we had a great evening of conversation.

I’ve been writing a lot this week, but it’s more for internal consumption. I’m doing a lot of journaling to see if I can get back to the essence of writing for myself. It’s a refreshing contemplative space for me since all my writing of the past 20 years has been facing outwards to the news media, the academic community and the Web. I am trying to make it into a practice, just like my yoga and meditation.
