Of New Beginnings and Old Friends

Welcome, one and all!

It’s been quite some time since I’ve operated any sort of blog (or any form of scheduled writing, in fact). Truth be told, I miss it.

Doctors’ reports seem to indicate that regular writing is good for the brain – and while I am not a doctor, I can tell you that regular writing is good for the soul.

So here we are. I offer no guarantees of how often I’ll write anything here, and God knows I offer no guarantee of quality (objective or perceived).

I hope you enjoy your stay – grab a brat and a beer, and sit on down.
