The thing about a blog concerned with writing is that if no writing has been going on, then it is difficult to find anything to say.
So it has been of late: I have not been writing, and so there’s not been a lot to post about. The day job intrusion I mentioned has something to do with that of course, but I lost a lot of time and energy to a magnificently debilitating illness in early June, and then we were away in Britain for the first two thirds of July visiting family and generally seeing the sights.
I’ve done a certain amount of refilling the well in that time (even while drawing pretty heavily from other wells), and so it is time to blow the dust off here and get back to my regular posting schedule.
Thank you for your patience. I am glad to have words again.
