It’s hard to believe that I have been doing this for 10 years now. During that time, I managed to publish 1,186 posts which resulted in 943,802 views (almost a million). I’ve had great discussions with many of you and value your insights. I am truly grateful.
Having said that, it is time to make some changes. I will confess that I originally planned to retire this blog. Ten years is a long time. Longer than I have kept any one job. Hell, the national average for the length of a marriage in the United States is only eight years! Add to that the fact that I am embarking on a new career path in research which will be demanding a lot from me, both in time and energy, and it was clear to me that I could not continue putting the same level of energy into this blog as I did in the past.
After consideration, I decided that instead of retiring the blog, I would just change my format. Instead of offering my thoughts and analyses on the things I read, I will just share quotes from the books and poems that I read in my abundant free time (yes, that is a joke). Hopefully, I will still be able to provide some wisdom and inspiration through the quotes.
Again, I want to thank you for sharing in my musings over these 10 years, and for understanding my need to scale back at this time in my life. Many blessings!
