Life threw me a curveball a few weeks ago, and I disappeared from the web. Only a small circle of friends knew why I had disappeared. Maybe someday I will explain here but probably not. Those of you who are investigative types will probably figure it out. To the rest of you, I’m sorry to leave you in the dark. Thank you all so much for your e-mails of support and inquiry in my absence. Here are a few I would like to share:
“Hey, if you’re dead or something, can you let us know?” ~4EvrLost
“Stoney, where the $@#$! are you?!?! The #$&#@ web feels so *@#$! empty without you!” ~Em
“Wow, its like you dropped off the face of the earth. I mean, not like earth has a face, but you know what I mean. The moon has a face, sorta, but you couldn’t drop off of it…earth’s moon. There are probably other moons with faces that don’t have enough gravity to keep you on it, so you could drop off one of those. Well, it’s not ‘dropping off’ per se, its more like floating away. But, you probably wouldn’t be on one of those anyway. … Would you!? Oh, man, that would be so cool though. Hurry back and let us know how it went.” ~0v3rQualiphil
Thanks all. Your heartfelt comments are encouraging. Unfortunately, I wasn’t on a moon with a face but without enough gravity to hold me. The gravity of the situation was quite enough.
One weird piece of serendipity happened in my absence. All of the bloggers that I follow posted new blog entries after months of hiatus. I guess when I’m not around to distract you with my posts, you find better things to do.
Hard to imagine.
Here’s what you have to look forward to in the next few weeks:
- I just watched the movie Inception. I will write a review.
- My thoughts on the book The Children of Húrin.
- Some philisophical ponderings on watching movies performed by actors who’s lifestyles you hate.
Thanks. It’s good to be back.
