I'm in the process of moving, packing up a life after twenty years in one house and going on to another, new place that will be entirely my own (although much smaller). For now my life is in chaos. All my books are taped up in boxes; meals are brief snatches in between work and endless hours sorting through whatever flotsam and jetsam has gathered on the shores of my existence. I will return with my usual posts soon. Meanwhile, catch up on old posts if you are new to my writings, or welcome the break from my incoherent ramblings.
