Time will tell.
Meanwhile, as Greg Hazley reports in Odwyerpr.com, Harvard's senior communications director Kevin Galvin is taking the top communications post at Arizona State University in Tempe. Galvin follows in a new marketing chief at ASU Dan Dillon. The mission is to transform the university into a global institution. Here is Hazley's coverage.
There are myriad reasons for a migration westward. I relocated to AZ in mid April from New England for 3 of them.
At the top of the list was the cost of living. Here in AZ, I now only pay one-fourth not one-half of my income for a roof over my head. My car insurance is less than one-half what it had been in Connecticut. And gasoline is about 40-cents less a gallon.
Then there was that Polar Vortex. Neither my rescue dog Lee K. nor I could go through another one. As with the other dogs in the complex, he had no place in the mountains of snow and ice to poop. He vacillated between aggression and depression. Every day I struggled to extricate my car from the whatever. Sometimes breaking through the ice took 90 minutes.
Also there was the obsessive careerism. There is no time for a life. No one is allowed to ever consider he or she "had made it." The threat of losing it all is palpable. Notice the proliferation of suicides in Manhattan?
I personally welcome Kevin Galvin west. When he's settled in, of course I will be pitching for freelance assignments.
