So, I have been out of sight for a while to some, mostly nesting you might say, but not entirely in that young-couple-deep-in-love-who-want-to-spend-every-moment-together way. More literally (but not quite literally), Danijela and I have been building our nest, gathering twigs and mud, securing it against the elements... Still, there has been a lot of that other type, since we are new homeowners, and after several months of marriage, we are at last living alone together.
But I, as I have mentioned in a previous post, have also been working at a new job, which requires me to leave the nest most days and fly to Concord, near Dufferin St. and Steeles Ave. It's not as bad as it sounds. I have become skilled at flying and reading, and I recently finished Neil Gaiman's American Gods—a 600-page novel—in about a week, a feat I hadn't accomplished for some time. It is, by the way, a very good book, and I highly recommend it. I will almost certainly proceed to read the rest of his books in the near future.
Besides, I actually enjoy my new job immensely, more than any job I have ever previously held. In case I haven't mentioned, I am an assistant editor for a business-to-business publisher of human resources policy manuals, as well as a related website that collects and consolidates Canadian HR and employment law news. And in the past month, I have begun writing articles for the website, HRinfodesk.com, on such topics as pension plan reform and paid paternal leave.
Even better, at the moment, one of my articles is available for free! So, if you're interested in seeing how I've spent part of my creative energy over the last while, please take a look.

Maybe there'll be more free stuff to come, but as it stands, if you want to talk about workplace wellness programs or the state of corporate social responsibility, just let me know!
