Anyway, I just wanted to say I wouldn't have made it anywhere near a semianniversary without ALL of you great people who read my blurts, whether just one or every one, whether friend or detractor, looney or otherwise [that'd be a lot of my personal friends ;-)]. I won't say I couldn't have done it without you; I wouldn't have done it without you. I spent the first twenty or so years of my so-called career preaching to a very small choir. Without readers this little project of mine would have been worse than futile. THANK YOU, EVERYONE!!!!
For your sake I hope my best work is ahead of me! In the meantime, your support truly means a great deal to me [most of you probably have no idea].
In that vein, with my field excursion to Czechland around the corner, I can promise you one thing. You'll see a different perspective once I get out of my pajamas and vacate my mama's basement! ;-)
