Reports of my demise have been grossly exaggerated

Long time no blog, eh?

Let’s see – what’s been going on in my life? I’ve been keeping busy. Ruby on Rails has been good to me and still having a lot of fun developing with it. But I’ve also been dealing with a bunch of house/car maintenance issues recently.

I’ve been spending a lot of time with my wife and kids. We saw some the Perseid meteor shower recently on a trip to the Shenandoah mountains. That was pretty amazing – like going to a planetarium. We get so much light pollution in the city but out there you can see all the stars. It was even better since it was a new moon (as in you couldn’t see the moon at all.) My wife said it was the first time she saw the Milky Way. I guess it must have been my first time too.

Well stay tuned. I just started writing in my Moleskine notebook again and for some reason that always sparks my creativity which inevitably leads to blogging. Something about high quality pen on high quality paper. I just got a nice pocket grid one. I mean who knew growing up that you could one day get a leather-bound book of graph paper?

I’ve also been doing a really really slimmed down version of GTD (Getting Things Done.) I call it “making lists and crossing them out”. Maybe my life is really simple, but it seems to work for me. And it frees up time for doing things like blogging.
