Hi there. It’s me. Any reports of my demise, if there were any, were premature.
I have spent the last several weeks in a trial, of a case I have had for six years. On Friday, the jury delivered a verdict. (Yes, I’m happy with it.)
This has been an all-consuming enterprise. I missed a vacation with my family. I did not write here or read anything here. I did not keep up with news. I did not go to church. I barely talked to anyone. Many days, I did not sleep more than four hours.
My sleep schedule has been wildly thrown off. Although I am theoretically back to “normal” I woke up before 3 today and decided to shower, have coffee, and start work. Might as well!
Another thing I did not do is write a newsletter. I feel guilty about that, because some people pay for the better stuff, and I have delivered nothing for weeks. The best I can do is offer a refund, and jump back on the horse this week. Email me for a refund for the time I have missed, and it will be cheerfully done. I will send the same offer by email to subscribers.
I thank the guest bloggers for their contributions, although sad to say I have not read them for a while. When you get four hours sleep for multiple nights, it saps your ability to do things like read excellent blog posts . . . or, well, to do anything not critically necessary to the mission.
Did I miss anything over the past several weeks?
