I'm just poking my head out of my gopher hole to take a quick look around. Looks like nobody has died in my absence, so that's a good thing. I wanted to let you all know that I haven't run screaming into the night with the net patrol hot on my heels (not saying it's not a possibility, but not just yet).
My holiday from the online universe has been less than absolute, and I would have liked to have had the time and money to do a real retreat, but it's been enough for me to get my bearings again. I've done a lot of thinking, examining my priorities in life, and I'm the better for having spent time away. To be honest, though, I've missed my friends.
I'm almost ready to resume my association with everyone, but there are still one or two more events which will predicate exactly when and how I will return. Until that time, I'm going back underground and collapsing the tunnel behind me. If you hear a little Kenny Loggins coming from the putting green, that's just me getting my groove on.
