MIA Report


Sorry to go all MIA on everyone all of a sudden. It’s been a horrible few weeks for me: first came the sudden loss of my dad, a personal tragedy that – following my strict policy of keeping my private life out of the blog – I chose not to write about at the time. It was a rough time, though.

Then, when life was just about returning to some semblance of normality, my computer simply stopped working. It’s in the shop now, and, well, evidently a blogger without a computer is about as much use as an ashtray on a motorcycle.

A zillion thanks to Juan for holding down the fort. I’ll get back into this groove eventually. Not quite yet, I don’t think, though. But soon.

    Be as excellent as your father ever was at his best–and everything else that makes life magical and beautiful will find it’s proper and artful level.
