I know I’ve been rather quiet lately. There is a reason for that. A year ago, this very week, my father was in the hospital struggling for his life. As many of you may know, he did not make it. In retrospect, I know it was best for him to leave his shattered body behind and he is no longer struggling just to take a breath of air. And I know that he would have been very proud of me and my accomplishment of publishing a book. He knew that I was close to completing the book last year before he fell ill. I plan on taking a weekend of reflection, to remember him, as my father passed on August 28th of last year.
