What I'm doing now

It’s January 2021 and this is my focus:

A job

Last fall, I was promoted to Research Communications Project Manager at the Duke Clinical Research Institute. Because of COVID-19, I continue to work from home most days; my work space is in the home office that looks through three big windows south to the wooded lot across the gravel driveway.

A new house

We’re about to build a new house in those woods that I look out to from the desk. There are a lot of details that go into designing and building a house, and our project is more challenging than others. Updates to come on the blog.

Soccer, as much as possible

I love to play and watch soccer. I’m back to playing on Sunday mornings, and I watch as much English Premier League as possible. Oliver’s team starts up again soon, and I’ll be watching him play.

This old blog, and more

I’m on my twenty-first year of this blog, and I will continue to chronicle my life and the world around me. For the first two decades, I most often wrote about my past experiences — about my service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Vanuatu, about my grandfathers and how their writings inspired me — but COVID-19 and 2020/2021 and other influences have shifted my gaze away from nostalgia and to what’s in front of me right here and right now. I recently helped Dave Winer test Drummer, his new outliner-based blogging system, and now I’m using Drum to blog at storian.org.
