As a long-time hubsquid, this has always been my shelter where I might ease my ringing ears with the voice of reason. I stopped being active and started lurking for probably well over a year now, maybe two. And I anticipated a big, warm, lovely "I'm back" post to say hi to all of you again-- some of whom I've met in person, and some of whom I could simply pass by on the street, walking opposite directions, and feel honored that you're on the same block as me.
Seems like trouble has found its way to paradise. I want to reconnect here and exchange some love and sanity. But I guess I'll hold off on a warm-and-fuzzy "I'm Back" and use this moment to beg the quiet ones to come out and grip hands. Hope you're all safe and well, and much love.
Edit: So as to offer a solution instead of showing up just to complain. I'm reading the latest book co-authored by former SECDEF Mattis, "Call Sign Chaos." I highly recommend it, even in audiobook, if your "leadership compass" could use a calibration towards compassionate and competent.
