Silence

Life has come crashing down, leaving me with small energy and less to say. Will resume blogging sooner rather than later, though.

Update: I am grateful for the expressions of concern. I have not been sick. Ordinary life, and what James calls the harassment of its obligations, is what has plagued me. The house, the cars, the commute, the job, the wife—they have not given me the peace in which to collect any thoughts. Sometimes it just all catches up with you.

I was starting to worry, actually. Glad to hear that things are stabilizing, and hope you're back and blogging soon.

I hope all's well. I look forward to your return.

Take care.

I simply say, "I wish you well." Please understand that there is more meaning and feeling in those four words than you can begin to imagine.

I've been concerned, but am heartened to hear of you. Take your time coming back. We'll be here when you do. Best wishes.

I hope everything's okay. I was beginning to wonder what might have happened. Looking forward to seeing you blogging again but I don't think I'd be alone if I said don't rush back into it if you need more time!

Hang in.

Re: Update.

Glad to hear that it's merely life that ails you and that you're otherwise well!

Professor Myers, I hope you are feeling better soon. It sounds like you're having an experience similar to one I have had, and was lucky enough to emerge from with the help of some loving friends and family. Please know that your online friends and admirers hold you in their thoughts.

Chin up. Wishing you well.
