A few updates are in order. My Mom passed away on Columbus Day, October 12, 2015. She would have celebrated her 101st birthday on December 18th, 2015, so she was well into her hundredth year.
With her passing, much has changed for me though outwardly things look much the same. I am still at the Saint Charles address for home and work, am continuing in the jobs I had at the beginning of 2015, and am starting to add on new projects and new consulting work.
Another important factor is that I am no longer “anchored” to living where I do. I have lots of support here and am not eager to move just to move. At the same time, if I were to have a reason to move, I could do so.
