I have been away from this blog so long, and indeed, had barely ever been at the thing at all, that it's tempting to think I should simply start a new one.
But that seems wasteful. So this constitutes my triumphal return to blogging. Or maybe just my return to blogging. Or, to lower the bar still farther, this constitutes my attempt to return to, or establish for the first time, a practice of blogging.
