I feel like a student that hasn't done his homework and now I'm surrounded by teachers slowly shaking their collective heads in unified disappointment. Shame, shame, I can hear them say. Maybe a little tsking, too.
Oh well. Sorry for the past...4 months?!? Whoops.
So what has happened in those 4 months? Sadly, a lot. Many good things: school started with fresh new faces and days filled with opportunity and learning. Some great fun motorcycle rides. Certain large fish now shudder at the slightest thought of my rod and reel. Weight has been lost (and unceremoniously found again). Hair re-grown. And finally a home has been bought and the walls freshly painted (praise God!).
The not-so-good things: I don't think I'm ready for that stuff just yet. The wounds are still sore.
But I feel ready to write again, which is a good thing. Hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to what these days have for us.
