Due to circumstances beyond my control…particularly my coming to the realization that my current job is running out at the end May and I haven’t spent a moment looking for another…I’ve made the decision to step away from blogging for a couple of weeks.
To any who may not know, I currently work as a Political Advocacy for the Democratic Party and in particular I’m involved with the campaign of a candidate running for local office in the Democratic Primary. The Primary election here in San Antonio is scheduled for May 29th. If we win the primary, and that possibly is looking very good, I have been offered a position with the campaign working towards the General Election in November. However, as well as the campaign is going, it’s far from a definite. Also, I’m not sure I want to spend another summer in south Texas… where we’ve already experienced triple digit temperatures. This, combined with my wishing to continue in my Robert Heinlein quest to learn and take a role in as many different experiences as possible in my lifetime, leads me to wanting to look elsewhere…not only new employment, but also a new location. This will require some focus on my part. There’s no question that working on a political campaign has been interesting, eye-opening, and at times both exciting and exhausting, and that the final upcoming 30 days towards the primary will no doubt be the most intense and interesting …which is all the more reason for my needing to take a small break from blogging.
Since I usually only post two or three times weekly, I doubt my contribution here will be missed much…however I will greatly miss having the time to go over the wonderful posts of friends and those I’ve come to know in my 5 months here. It’s something I’ve grown to love and I WILL BE BACK. To any wanting to get in touch for any reason I can be reached via email. I will, regrettably, not be able to respond to any comments. In the meantime…don’t stop pursuing the things you love!!
