First and foremost, I want to thank those of you who frequent and follow my blog. As with most people during the seasonal transition, sudden illness has found me. Between the possible infection and the seasonal allergies, the fact that I make it into work each day is yet another miracle. Still I refuse to be deterred, even when my own body betrays me. So, this week I am conserving my energies for my other writing projects. So not only is this week’s blog late, but it is also cut short.
