I beg forgiveness for my absence and silence, my friends. It seems that the summer's hustle and bustle has muted my poetic voice somewhat. I will endeavor as best I can to continue to write, though my pace, I fear, will be somewhat decreased. Do not give up hope, however. I am still here, and still thinking of all of you.
As an adjunct to this little apology, I will also say, "Sorry," to those people whose websites have been left unread and unpatronized by me. Rest assured, I shall return and make comments when time allows.
Well, then. I hope you are all doing well and keeping cool in this unreasonably hot summer.
