It's been a long time away from my computer. Time that has done me good, I feel. I'm fortunate enough to have wonderful friends that have picked up my slack with insightful posts. Changeseeker has hit Citizen Orange in full force, and I trust you've all enjoyed her writing as much as I have over the years. I will write more fully tomorrow about my time away and the new year, but for now I just wanted to let everyone know that it's good to be back.
