Wow, it has been a while since I posted anything. And I had been starting out so well. Alas, life gets in the way of art, and getting to the computer is often the last thing on a very long list of things that require my attention. Anyway, I’m still alive, and excited to hear that — slowly — new readers are finding this little corner of the web. I hope that you will all find cause to return again soon. Certainly I plan to be back much more often than the past month has allowed me to. It is hard, at the end of a long and often utterly draining day, to find even a few words to string together in a form that is worth sharing with the world. All too often I am best served by simply going to my sleep. So forgive my long silence, and check back soon; I have hopes for substantive utterances in the very near future.
