I'm sorry about that extended hiatus. I wish I could report that it's over. The truth is the past 5 or 6 weeks have been remarkable. There is so much to report (culminating in this past 10 days which have been unprecedented in my lifetime -- and my readers all know that's saying a lot). Hopefully, I'll fill you all in soon. But, frankly, I'm just so very busy that blogging simply hasn't been on my list.
In the meantime, then, I give you a new blog: People and things I don't understand, written by my lovely spouse. Her first entry, People who don't love baseball is up. An excerpt (in which she nails a common reason for blogging (though not, of course, mine)):
I have decided to start a blog. The first question is, what do I have to say? I have such deep, insightful thoughts when I am in the middle of doing something else, or laying awake in bed, and yet no recollection of them when I am sitting at the keyboard. I am certain this happens to everyone… we are all brilliant in our own heads. But now I want to shine in the cyberworld. I want to be a blogger on issues of importance and perhaps more importantly, I want my readers to be impressed with my intelligence and wit.
Check it out. I will return -- probably within the next two weeks.
