I present to you now the Jim Houghton quotes I have written down, that I have often referred to and will continue to refer to in times of uncertainty. I present them exactly as I transcribed them, without editorialization or comment.

Feb 13, 2016 by

It’s been a long time since I have written a blog post. I’m not going to apologize, because that would be weird and pointless. It’s my blog. I’m busy. You know all that. But I am writing today, because this is the virtual space where I feel comfortable being vulnerable. I guess it’s because my name is in the URL. Who knows?
