I don’t usually bring my personal life into the blog, but in this case my absence caused a backlog of unapproved comments and generally interrupted the normal flow of discourse in the blog, so I thought a word of explanation was in order. I’ve been out of commission since the 28th of June following a trip to the ER and an unplanned surgery. I’ll spare you the gross details–I’m fine (though sore of course), the recovery is going well, the underlying problem is resolved. I’ll be home at least a week convalescing, but I’m under doctor’s orders NOT to be sedentary, so I’m going to have to limit my computer time relative to my usual habit of spending hours at a time bathed in the glow of the monitor.
I’ll be around though, don’t worry.
