Blogger Makes Lame Excuses

For the first time in more than a year, I got sick--really sick. I was in bed for about four days, and spent another three days recovering. During that time, my wife did a great job playing nurse. Whenever I am not well, she always takes excellent care of me.

Soon after, I went off to a major work-related conference I attend each year. It is always held at the same university about two hours away, and it lasts for four days. The purpose is primarily to conduct corporation business, but there are some networking and training opportunities, too. Plus, the food is excellent.

And those are the reasons, my friends, why I haven't posted in a long while. I know it has been disruptive for all of you, and you may have seen the front page articles in the New York Times ("Popular Blogger Out of Commission") or the Washington Post ("Blog Readers Lose Inspiration"), or in some other paper. At any rate, I am back, and have lots of blog ideas up my sleeve.

I particularly want to write more about that midlife crisis on the horizon, and in particular my thoughts and frustrations related to my career. A post or two on that subject will come your way later this week. Also, there is an all-important garden update. (Good things are happening, though I didn't have much chance to get my hands dirty while I was ill and out of town.) Plus, I have a few things to say about baseball. Stay tuned.

Yes, for those of you in the blogosphere, your Compass Star has returned!
