A New Look and Some Personal Growth
Sunday evening Lori and I uploaded the new look for this blog. What you see is almost entirely the work of my lovely and talented wife. I suggested the image, and she asked me some questions, but I was fairly hands off on how it looked. Given I have preferences for pretty much everything, that’s a major step of growth for me.
My wife has a far better eye for how a blog looks. I know this, but I’ve always done it myself just the same. I like the result, but I suspect the average reader is less impressed than I am with my efforts. So this time I let the expert who stands next to me do it. It’s nothing like what I would have done, but I like it and I’m very proud of my wife.
The new banner image is of Lori and I sitting by the lake at the Falls Lake State Recreation Area outside Durham, NC. We spent four wonderful days parked there the spring of 2016. It was a planned downtime – no speaking or visiting, and limited online work. It was a time to reconnect, recharge, and get some needed us time. We have fond memories of those few days, and I love seeing that image every time I go to the blog.
BTW, this theme has a much better mobile version, something a few of you have been asking for.
