on your mark

This week begins 5 weeks where I have no travel plans, no speaking engagements, and no pressing deadlines.  I haven't had this much time where my schedule is my own since fall of last year.

This isn't to say that I have nothing to do:  I'm way behind on many things, and I know I'll be playing a lot of catch-up over the next couple of weeks.  But -- and I don't know if it's the fact that the first day of spring has come and gone or not -- I'm ready.

Who says January 1st has to be the only beginning of a year?  

Let's do this.
