The New Years weekend is over and we are now actually starting 2009. I begin the year somewhere between trepidation and cautious optimism. Our local area is not exactly a hotbed of economic activity, but I think now our government and the American public in general realize the scope of the problem, and I hope to see some real activity to find solutions. In the meantime I will try to stay proactive and try to continue to develop myself and my craft, and to provide value for my clients. Like everyone else, I will keep a close eye on my operation, and I will be spending more time working closer to home. North Carolina has a lot to offer as does the Greensboro area, and I plan to put more effort into local documentation. Of course, I am always open to travel and work elsewhere if the need arises. So, for 2009 I'm going to hang on. It might be a wild ride, but I'm sure it will be interesting.
