I think I’m back…

Hi, Friends —
I’ve been away, more than not, for more than a month now. First it was computer problems (thanks, Pete, for saving my laptop for a few more hours of hard grind!). Then it was illness — I’ve had upper respiratory problems including repeated sinus infections and laryngitis since the day before our Messiah performance (that would be December 9/10). I’m starting to get back on my feet, and I hope to resume regular posting…

… not that I have much to say that will change the face of the nation. I’ve got several drafts going of some new stuff… including a stab at some reflections on the recent uprisings of Islamic extremists (?) over the Danish cartoon images of Mohammed… we’ll see what winds up for the world to see. Thanks for your ongoing prayers.
