Someone pointed out to me this morning that my blog has become a veritable graveyard, what with the latest – and only – posts being obituaries and all.

Trust me, it hasn’t been intentional. In fact, I’ve got a whole stack of stuff in the ol’ draft pile that I just haven’t had time to get to these days.

One reason is I’m engrossed with Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus’s Leaders: Strategies for Taking Charge. I started out reading it for a project in which I’m involved. I began making notes as I read, and soon discovered that I was practically copying the book into my Moleskine! Good stuff that’s hitting me right where I need to be hit these days.

That and trying to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, combined with a touch of the ol’ flu bug, has made posting a chore that is less of a priority than I planned.
