The blog continues, despite a significant gap due in part to Your Humble Annotator having a mild mental meltdown (as you do when your 'hood gets wiped off the map) and a therapeutic trip to New York City to visit an old friend and unwind from the stress of being sideswiped by an F5. Two words: culture shock.
Nevertheless, the blog will continue shortly. I am shooting for Saturday/Sunday for Part Two of Petals on the Wind. Stay tuned.
