I have been absent for a while. Too busy to write? Or not busy enough? Maybe bad priorities. Who knows? Lots has happened in my recent life and much is currently happening: shifting employment situation; probably relocation: potentially to another country, at the very least – to a major city in the Midwest; though my closest loved ones are always close, my birth loved ones (mother, sister, etc.) are farther extended than ever: this will further complicate grandparent visits for my daughters; three business trips to other countries; and the family dog has been near death for several weeks. And there is more. But those are the details that matter. Too much. And not enough. And somewhere in-between. That is how it has felt of lately. But here to catching up! – Cheers!
