Reflecting On 30 Years
A year ago, I embarked on relaunching The Paxtonian with the promise to myself, and my staff, that I’d write, monthly, for at least the coming year. With the publication of this issue, I’ve kept that promise, missing just one month to a confluence of issues including Covid-19, and admittedly, writer’s block. Although reflecting on the trajectory of Paxton Gate, mulling over paths taken, and even recounting my favorite customer quotes, has been rewarding, it’s also challenging. To some degree it’s just a scheduling issue. With a lot on my plate, it’s tough to find the time to write a well-crafted, monthly piece, while allowing time for editing, image sourcing, formatting, and on-time publishing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dug through the Paxton Gate memorabilia boxes over the last year!
