Okay, I know I haven’t been too active on here and I’ve missed you all but you know how this thing called “life” works. Many of you have also found yourselves bogged down with “stuff” and social networking AKA blogging is out for a bit. There’s still a lot of “life” going on at the moment and a Calgon moment on a deserted island (well, not completely deserted: just a masseuse, gourmet chef, and a well-stocked library) would be much appreciated. Instead, I will have to settle for a steaming mug of Chai (soy latte). Yes, coffee is still out (I’m holding up *barely* in case you were wondering). I hope all has been well with you and, in case it hasn’t, here’s some positive thoughts via cyberspace. Hoping for some tranquility and lulls. . .
