Its hard to imagine, in a blinking of the eye, the year is going by so fast. I was here in France last October, having a rhubarb cordial in a restaurant in Amiens, France. Work is so hectic, its the same everywhere in corporate America. My neighbor who works for a bank just took medical leave, she's stressed out. I'm hanging in there. Its an entirely regulatory world, whether in the medical field (I am) or in the banking industry (where my neighbor is). But I have my memories and its keeping me going.
