Looks like the last few years have taken their toll. My month off has turned into an absence of several months. I guess I’ve needed the time and the space–and the lack of pressure. So I won’t make any hasty promises that I’ll be returning to my old self anytime soon; but I do have hopes of beginning anew. Perhaps not with urgency or daily discipline but a return nonetheless. I hope you’ll bear with me and will return as the new entries accumulate. Thanks for your patience.
