Life has got me by the cojones these days, and so I haven't found much time to delve into the blog with any kind of substance or gravity. I have a lot of things swirling in my mind that will find expression on the Upchuck, but probably not for a bit. So, given that I am still operating under my blogging self-nudge, my meeting this obligation is more than likely going to be done by light and fluffy stuff. It counts, according to my blogging self-nudge rules; but it's going to meet the bare requirements, I'm afraid. Not to worry, though, I still plan to keep the blogging self-nudge going, primarily as a matter of discipline. So stay tuned and be patient, for which I thank you in advance.
