. . . for me to step away from blogging. Again (and those of you who have known me from the beginning, or close to it, back in May 2006, will be forgiven for saying, "Yeah, we've heard that before"). It's been a pretty long, sustained run this time, over 4-1/2 years, from June 2008 until today, with a quick break to change blogs and blog-o-nyms at the end of 2009.
Alas, the Real World is pressing its claims on my life, and I just need to clear my head and readjust my priorities real-ward.
I don't know if or when I'll be back; as of this minute, I don't have any plans, one way or the other. Perhaps I'll still visit your blogs and leave an occasional comment, but I can't promise that I will. If it turns out that I never do return, please allow me to say that I have enjoyed every one of you that I've met (or, I should probably rather say, 'met', in finger-quotes) here in blog-space. You are some wonderful folks, and I have enjoyed such friendship as we've shared, for never having laid actual, physical eyes on each other. If I should ever happen to be in any of your neighborhoods, perhaps we can get together for a suitably convivial beverage.
Until we meet again. It's been a blast.
Blessings to you all. . .
