  • I like being blessed, just not when I sneeze in a meeting

    Today, a hodgepodge of thoughts.

    It’s spring and you’d think it’s August and the ragweed is blooming.

    I’m sneezing my head off, wiping my nose raw and daubing the tears from my eyes, sometimes because of the allergens that are viscously attacking me and other times because I’m just sad that my annual allergy season has been expanded by a few months.

    OK, so there are a few drawbacks to summer.
