Under the radar

I don't have anything to say. If anything comes up that I have an opinion on,  you'll be the first to know.

But thank you for reminding me that I haven't posted anything in a while. Half of the intent was to take some of the heat off of me and to after a contentious election cycle, and the other half is about me not having much to say. It's nice flying under the radar.

Before I started this blog, several well-meaning friends and even a few of my mentors urged me to write about my thoughts on the political happenings in Our Town. After a couple of years of typing my opinions into perpetuity, I've been advised not to write at all and to shut this blog down because there are people in high places who don't like what I have to say.  And to that, I say, ya vez?! Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it.  I've angered many but I've also been thanked for sticking my neck out. One person has chosen to distance herself from me altogether, and that's completely fine with me, because at least I know where I stand.

Just to be clear, my boss has not asked me to shut my mouth. In fact, he told me that he was proud of me and of my work and appreciates the fact that I didn't just sit down and shut up when "advised."

So ... move along, folks. Nothing to see here - YET!
