I've been away for a while now, but I must say I'm extraordinarily impressed with how "busy" this place has become over the last few months. Perhaps I should be away more often
Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know where I was, and that I hadn't simply abandoned the board. My father was diagnosed with advanced renal cancer a while back, and I've been running his business and taking care of him in my free time since then. As usual, this leaves me with little or no time for myself, and certainly no time for a good read. I sincerely apologize for being absent from my own site for so long now, especially just when it's attained a new renaissance of discussion, and I sincerely appreciate the new life you've all brought to this humble little tavern on the web.
"Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments will hum about mine ears; and sometimes voices, that, if I then had wak'd after long sleep, will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming, the clouds methought would open and show riches ready to drop upon me, that, when I wak'd, I cried to dream again"
I'm sorry to hear about your father. I'm also glad that you're back. I've taken the liberty of inviting some folks over from elsewhere to bring in some posts. If you can stop in at ShakespeareHigh and send me a PM I'll pass on what we had discussed behind the scenes. I would send a message in this site but I can't get it to work no matter what I try.
