For those that don't understand the reference.
I didn't ask for bread, I didn't break any of the rules...but I will not be attending Oracle OpenWorld this year.
Family matters require that I be home.
I'm sure I've suffered from some level of depression over the years since Kate was born, it hasn't kept me from working (an escape, to be sure), but it has affected me. I don't think I've understood the extent to which it has affected my family, as a whole though.
So I'm taking some time to help where I can.
Of course I'll miss seeing my friends, hanging out with the smart people...in other words, being there.
Family is simply more important.
