Dear friends, I will take a break from blogging over the next couple weeks. This gives me a chance not only to rest for a bit but also to think about my goals and plans for this bog in the coming year. Thanks to all those who read my blog regularly or occasionally, and for the interactions I frequently have with you via comments, social media, email, or in person. I look forward to returning to the blog in mid-July. In the meantime, enjoy this picture I took of a beautiful setting in northern Wisconsin a couple years ago.
