I apologize for the long hiatus from blogging. Since my last post, I have gone from being a student to not being one, ending a 5 year tryst with la vie academic. I have also moved up north about 300 miles from the sunny shorelines of central California, to the occasionally sombre East Bay. In the course of this prolonged transition and the consequent piecemeal efforts at habitation, I have been unable to keep up with the blog.

The posts will resume shortly, now that I have said it.
