I can’t believe another year has gone by. At 67-years-old, the
next year always seems to go by faster than the one before. I’ve
asked many people if they experience this too and unfortunately,
the answer has always been a resounding yes. Perhaps our
lives have speeded up dramatically, moving faster and getting
more work in. Instead of the technology allowing me to work
and then enjoy more leisure time, it seems that it just allows me
to do more work.

I remember when a 30-hour work week was seriously
discussed, one that would basically give a worker 40 hours’
worth of pay plus health care and fringe benefits and not the
present day concept of a 30 hour work week in which people
get low wages and few, if any, fringe benefits. This discussion
occurred at the dawn of the technological revolution of the early
1980s. Instead of us all benefiting from and receiving the
technology dividend of increased productivity, it somehow went
to the richest top one-percent.

And yet the technology has allowed us to publish The Capital
City Hues. While I am the “face” of the publication, The Hues’
continued success is due to the contributions of its reporters,
columnists, photographers, webmaster, delivery person and
most importantly 10 financial — and spiritual — partners. In
March 2020, we will begin our 15th year of publishing The
Capital City Hues and that means on the last Sunday in June
2021 we will hold our 15th anniversary festival celebration.
Save that date.
