Sorry to have been so long absent. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, look north to vast skies and a windswept place of houses sunken into sand dunes and long, lingering evenings where the light is loathe to dwindle. Sometimes in order to un-clutter your mind you have change your mental address, at least temporarily. Sometimes you even have to abandon social media — believe it — for a while. Still, it’s been too long since I last saw you. I sure hope you feel the same.
