I can't tell you what's been going on without revealing more of my personal and professional life than I want to reveal on this blog. Suffice to say that none of your amusing suppositions--that my wife has forbidden me from blogging, that I have gotten a divorce, that I am dead, that I am either bin Laden or on the SEAL team that killed bin Laden--is quite true.
The bottom line is that the first line of my first posting turned out to be prophetic, but things are getting better. In fact, I had something of a revelation a few weeks ago when I realized that I enjoy CRPG blogging more than most things I do professionally. I've spent some time recently jettisoning some of my roles to make sure I have more time for my hobbies (my CRPG playing isn't the only thing to have taken a hit lately) and that I can keep a more regular posting schedule.
I've finally emerged from the weeds this week...just in time for JazzFest in New Orleans. But when that's over, I promise I'll be back on track at a pace that will boggle your minds.
Thanks for your patience, and I'll be back as soon as I can.
