It's been months since I awoke in a city where I could find my own column in one of the Saturday papers. But thanks to the folks at The Wall Street Journal today was different. The Journal ran a column I wrote with the headline, "Confessions of an Organization Man."
I wrote it on the plane coming back from Vancouver, B.C., where I had been taking care of my mother, who fell and broke her arm. I had been reflecting for some time on my experience losing my job and paper, and in this column tried to capture a lesson I had learned. This kind of writing somehow didn't feel right for my blog. It felt like a newspaper column. So I was very appreciative that Journal editors would consider sharing it with their readers.
