Oh, how I have missed you so! I have chosen these past many weeks to be more responsible in my use of time, seeing as I had fallen miserably behind in grading and my students’ plaintive expressions worked through the medicine-fog all the way to my heart. At least, it got close enough to my heart to move me to action. I have missed the sweet solace of writing and revising and posting the small utterings of my soul, however insignificant. I have missed the feeling of connection when people leave a little comment. And I am glad to have returned to this fertile ground in which I plant words and watch them grow.
