It's a good time to look back over the year in this last week when calls & e-mails are down considerably. Not much business seems to get done with folks taking time off for the holidays or using the last of precious vacation days.
Professionally it's been an interesting year, albeit one with numerous ups & downs. I enjoyed a lot of challenging and fun work, including some special pro bono projects. I also met new colleagues and reconnected with others through my travels, attendance at AMA and IAF events and, of course, through the blogosphere.
Unfortunately, this year was overshadowed with much sadness - I lost two very special men in my life: my father-in-law (who passed away in April) and my father (who passed away earlier this month). And that's why I'm anxious to say goodbye to 2006.
Here's to better times in 2007 ... and a happy & healthy New Year!
