It’s been a while; I hope you’ve been well.

Nearly two years ago, I posted what ended up being the final article on the original The View from 5022.  Soon after, I got hacked…badly…, got fed up with all the struggles, and requested that all my blogs be deleted.  I canceled my internet, email, and phone service.  When I did, I also lost proof of  ‘ownership’ of the blog (which did not get deleted.)  No matter.  I’m still at 5022 and still viewing the world from this vantage point.

I’ve learned a great deal in the past 2 years; I’ve also un-learned a great deal.  My faith is stronger, deeper, and more closely governs my days.  My beliefs, however, have evolved and I would no longer write some of the articles I wrote 2 and 3 years ago.  Primarily, I have learned that it is not my place to change the world or to fix anyone or anything.  But, I will tell you more about that later.

For now, just know it is good to be back on the front porch, watching the birds.  Oh, and I now have a couple of plastic water pistols…squirrel sized.
