Well, I'm back. I was off-planet since Tuesday, which explains the silence. Needed peace, quiet, seclusion and a new routine in order to get some thinking and writing done. Spring break allowed this to happen. Where did I go? Somewhere where there are no web connections, and no mobile phone signal. Importantly, it takes me only a bit over three and a half hours in my little spaceship to get to this excellent place. Wonderful! "So where was he?", the three of you reading this are wondering. Was he on the surface of the moon?

Hmmm, no. That place has clouds and coloured sky, so clearly there's a substantial atmosphere. How about Middle Earth?

How about Tatooine?

Ok, none of the above, although in a sense the latter is closest. Well, I'm refreshed, and now have to read a hundred or more emails. More about the trip off-planet later. -cvj
