    The job front lately has been rough. We are undergoing major cuts and by the end of this week will have let go of over 100 people. In my position, that means assisting in determining who and how that will impact our mission critical functions. This is not the norm for us, so the entire organization is taking it very hard. I dread how it will change our organizational culture. I went through this at my last job.

    So, there's been that. It's been a huge stressor. So, even though I don't get to say a ton on here right now, I'm still watching and reading. Thank you to the other admins for keeping up with the slack.

    I leave tomorrow for a trip to Northern Ireland and am on the tail end of a nasty head cold so wish me luck.

        I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
        Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

        From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

          Enjoy your trip and I hope you get better soon. I've been to Ireland myself [several times over the years] and it is beautiful there. As for your job: it's a tough position you're in. Having to let go of all those people must be very stressful. I don't envy you. But have a safe trip.
