Unlike my previous extended absences (outlined here and here), this past one isn’t just due to work. (Partially, yes; exclusively, no.) It’s been rough going for several months now, and when I don’t feel like myself, I don’t see the science in everything. No science = no posts. Bit by bit I’ve been trying to get my proverbial ducks back in a row, but I haven’t been sure how to dip back into the blogosphere.
