I apologize for my absence. Life has, I'm afraid, caught up with me. After my surgery in August, complications that followed, school starting and me, not feeling better, blogging has fallen to the back burner. I must admit that I really haven't had the gumption. Want to know something? I'm behind on everything: school, reading, writing, teaching. Everything including email. Before surgery, I had a few unread emails in my inbox. Right now there are 789. Yup. 789. And, since I'm not still not feeling quite up to par, consider this my notice that I will be only blogging over at my other blog only for a while. I'll try to shoot back here around Advent.
