Yes, it’s been 7 years, but I’d lost interest in the blog because I just didn’t feel up to reviewing every single book I’d read or every single movie I’d seen. And I’m not an exhibitionist who feels the need to share every detail of my life (which isn’t even remotely fascinating).

A lot has happened since January of 2014. I help my mom and dad with their lives. I’m firmly ensconced in my own little home, and I’ve even made a couple of improvements. I still love my job and have begun to think about what I will end up doing once I retire. That won’t be for a few more years yet, but time flies even if you’re not having fun, and those few years will speed by and I don’t want to be caught unprepared. I’d love to travel around North America – get in a car and go to California to see my brother. Or go to South Dakota to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum. Or up to Gettysburg and see the battle site. Or see British Columbia. Or go back to Montreal. There’s so much to do and see.

So I’m going to try to keep up with this, with books or movies or TV shows, or whatever. I’m not trying to amaze the whole room, just a portion of it.
