KVHA Calendar (in brief…)
For nine years I've watched many KVHA projects begin and can happily report that I've seen very few end. It's not that we haven't gotten anything done. Many final project reports have been written.The reports have careful boundaries, dates on a calendar. We have to untangle time to separate the strands of projects from one another. Projects wind around one another, seamless and yet distinct.Like hand spun yarn, continuity is a thing of beauty.I am extremely proud of 2006. People and projects seemed to fit and the days seemed full of energy. However, I can’t point to a single day on the calendar when we were successful.Success doesn’t come in simple, measurable increments. It’s not just about plan- ning ahead. It’s about anticipation….and it’s about being ready for change.In this newsletter, the projects are interwoven to give readers a sense of the cohe- sion that hallmarked 2006. The dividends of continuity will play out in 2007.We anticipate success, we have planned for success, and we’re ready for whatever contingencies come our way. Welcome 2007!
