“Key Communications”

Wow Wow Wow

You know how it is when you studied something, got ready for it, knew what to expect and believed you could handle the challenge? You know how it is when you move from being intellectually prepared to actually going through it? You think you can handle it, and you’ve trained for it. And then you have got to do it. Or try to anyway. Well that’s me this month. Let me explain. Our Keycomm offices are scheduled to move over Christmas week. We’ve been here a long time and I would not say we’ve outgrown our space but we’ve outgrown its configuration. And we’re at the limit of what re-configuring… Read More »

A Race Well-Run

I let out a silent sigh and exhaled slowly so the sound was imperceptible to the caller on the phone. It was her again and she was calling once more to let me know she’d be late. This used to happen occasionally but it had turned into a monthly, and now almost weekly, occurrence. And she always used the same excuse.  I took a long look out the window.

Now before I… Read More »
