Humble and Profuse Apologies

No, really; I am still alive. I won't go into everything that has been keeping me away from the burghosphere over the past few weeks. It started out as an innocent trip out of town for a few days, then grew longer as I spent more time outdoors hiking with my children. Then it progressed into a mountain of work for my employer. I have also been quite busy applying for and negotiating about a new position with my current employer. And after all of that, I simply felt out of touch with everything that was happening locally. I couldn't seem to find a topic that I cared or knew enough about to write an intelligent post about.

But at some stage, what really kept me from posting was, as strange as this may seem, simple embarrasment about having gone so many days without posting. It seems like some kind of blogger death spiral or something, where the lack of posting leads to an even deeper lack of posting. But the only way to break out of it is to try to find my feet again. And now that my boss has left the country for a while, I can finally catch my breath again. At least until the next time he forgets the time difference and accidentally calls me at 3:00 AM.

To everyone who has sent me emails enquiring about my absence, I can only offer my heartfelt thanks. I'm touched by the fact that you were thinking of me. I'll get back into the swing of things again. I promise!

Don't be embarrassed. Just write. I admit I've stopped by everyday. Sometimes twice. Welcome back.

I was about to have to go do some espionage and take my nunchuks with me! Maybe even my sai-s too!

But I guess I'll just take a nap, instead.

Whew! We were all quite concerned. Actually, we were all experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Can't wait for your next post!
