Wow, I took the whole week off from this-here blog. It's not that I've had nothing to say, but that nothing has happened that inspired any coherent entries, especially on the Green front. Last Monday I missed the opportunity to collect blog-fodder by abstaining entirely from the monthly general meeting of the Harris County Green Party for the second consecutive month. In the week since then, my initial anguish over letting my comrades down by announcing my withdrawal from participation has evolved into the Serenity of Letting Go.
Last night, however, I participated in a GPTX conference call regarding candidate development, and that call has inspired a post that will appear here in the next day or two. Beyond that, I expect to post at least a couple of times this week.
