“You never fail until you stop trying”

Albert Einstein

Yes, I’ve been away too long and I fell back on my goal to write a post a month (I was so close!). Alas, I’m hoping to cram in what I’ve been up to during the last two months of 2021. But first, it’s a little terrifying to realize that just like that, another year is about to end and a new one is on the horizon.
