Dark Cloud (a poem)

Dark cloud, dark cloud, will you be staying long?
Dark cloud, dark cloud, won't you move along.

Your shade it skews my vision
and weighs upon my soul.
Your wind and rain they beat me
and take a heavy toll.

Dark cloud, dark cloud, will you be staying long?
Dark cloud, dark cloud, won't you move along.

Where have you been?

For those of you who follow this blog, that is the question that you've likely been wanting to ask me. Yes, it has been a while since I've posted (admittedly, too long). Well, the truth is, I have been writing and posting, just not here.

As some of you may know, for the last two and a half years I've been writing for a manufacturing-focused blog that I started with Steve Staub, the president of Staub Manufacturing Solutions (where I work). To our surprise, what started out as a novelty blog has grown into a influential platform. MADEinDAYTONblog.com has become a leading industry voice, offering solutions for manufacturing's most pressing issues, namely it's poor image and empty workforce pipeline.

We are currently in the midst of some exciting and positive changes to that platform that will allow us to have a greater impact in bringing about some much needed changes. Long story short, that's where I've been spending much of my time.
