As youâ€™ve all probably already noticed, there has been a shortage of 4XForums in your mailbox this year. This is a direct result of my severe case of â€œtoo-much-on-my-plate-itisâ€.
Some major changes to my life over the last 6 months including a new venture in my business and newly acquired acreage for which to care, have dramatically affected my available free time that was previously used for 4XForum production. And the best news of all: Dawn and I are expecting our first baby in March so my already inadequate available time for 4XForum production will completely dry up.
So with all that said, I regret to inform the membership that I will be respectfully resigning my post as 4XForum editor after this issue. I feel that I have done the organization a disservice this summer by not having time to work on the Forums and getting them out to you in a timely fashion, and I donâ€™t foresee any opportunity to regain the free time that I used to spend on this publicaiton.
I have enjoyed working with all of the people who have contributed to the 4XForum over the last nearly three years.
I sincerely hope that somebody in this fine organization can step up and pick up where I left off. I have digital archives of all of the previous issues since I took over.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the communication within the organization.
And, here is the belated "Summer" issue of the 4XForum.

Outgoing 4XForum Editor
