Yet another other good-bye
Here we are at my last True/Slant post. Someone once said “Saying good-bye is what starts the next new thing” and that seems like just the right sentiment for this moment, even though I can’t say what that next new thing might be.
What I can say is that True/Slant has been an absolute blast. The management team (Lewis Dvorkin, Coates Bateman, Michael Roston, Andrea Spiegel, and Steve McNally) created a place where even a full-time clinician like me could write what he thought about the issues of the day.
Readers may not know that various T/S contributors became friends, frenemies, colleagues, pen-pals, admirerers, and readers. Sometimes the really interesting action was off the screen at farm-to-table dinners, business lunches, and collaborations. I think it’s safe to say that any project from which one leaves with new friends is a success; T/S has been a huge success.
And those of you who took the time to read (and comment!) actually made me think my clumsy attempts to bring some clarity might actually have worked here and there: Thank you!
Oh, I remember who made that comment about saying good-bye. Me. It was something I posted here and on my Psychology Today blog. So, if you want to continue reading what I have to say, please take a look over at Psychology Today.
And I hope there will be good news come September about my continuing to work with the T/S crew at the next venture. After all, there’s lots more to say (and new friends to make).
