Hi. Welcome. It’s me. The person who, by the evidence of my hard drive, has written you no fewer than four Christmas letters and never mailed them to you.** (Because I’m assuming you only found this blog by being told by me directly that it was here. And hence that I already like you rather a lot.)
The person who kept up a somewhat sporadic blog on another site, until it fizzled out under the weight of my chronic conviction that I had nothing of interest to say — until, suddenly, there’s was lots to say, because I was out doing exciting new things, and hence too busy to keep up a blog.
The person who dislikes the phone and really pretty much hates video conferencing and actually isn’t too bad a hand at e-mails, when she thinks to send them. Which isn’t often.
…wait a minute. Do you know who this is? Do I need to reintroduce myself here? Heavens, I’ve been gone a long time.
It’s me! Under a new name and — dare I say — new management. So, yes, rather a lot has happened since whenever it was you heard from me last. But I am out to change that.
This time, I have plans. And doings of interest! …almost nothing but doings, it seems. The Management is shaking up my world some. There’s already such a backlog of things to tell — which will all wait their turn for their own posts, like good things.
Believe it or not.
** I reread them last night. They’re pretty good. Too bad you missed them. I believe I was rather witty in some.
