Hello world!

Okay, okay, I guess it’s time I started a blog. If one more person asks me if I have one, I’ll just scream!

For someone who went head long into web (my first website in 1994) I’ve sure been slow on the uptake when it comes to blogging. My reluctance? It’s another thing on the list to do, and it’s so, well, public. If I forget to show up, you’ll know. If I don’t have much to say, you’ll know. If I’m on a rant, you’ll know. What if I’m not in the mood?

Like most things, I’m way overthinking it. So when I woke up this morning and found that Amy (our webmaster plus++) had already signed me up with wordpress I just surrendered and said “YES.” Apparently the time has come.

So here I am – so what do I have to say for myself today?  How about just simply “Thank you.”  To Amy for getting this started, and to all the people (Adrian, Mark, Jeff and… ) who have been nudging me in this direction for a long time. I’m here!

And I know that I will find a way to enjoy this and make it a place where lots of people can share their comments on creating great places to work, caring for customers and employees, enjoying more personal and organizational happiness and doing good in the world.

It’s a great day in the neighborhood!
