Despite my leave of absence from writing here, it's been an itching of mine to get back. And in recent weeks, there have been a few people who have asked, "Where have you gone?" Sure, they might be questioning where my head has been, but a few them asked about the blog too. I've missed it here. More than anything, I've missed writing for an audience that listens. (That's actually something I thought I'd never say.) I've missed you because it's those of you that listen that keep me tied down to the ground. I'm sometimes convinced that if I spend a second longer in my own head, I'll just float up into the clouds. You keep me grounded. For that, I'm thankful.
I tell my quick stories to most of you through Facebook, Twitter, even Instagram, but none of it is like writing here. Here I'm not confined to 140 characters which cause me to use improper grammar to get my point across. Here, the world is literally at my fingertips.
So here's the announcement: The blog is back. I don't know for how long (though I have lofty aspirations) and I can't promise I'll have something worthy to say, but I'll talk if you're willing to listen.
