Postcards from the Edge

Greetings and Salutations.

It came to me as I was receiving my daily rub down and eye polishing treatment that it was a year ago today that I first put my little fingers to blogging my exploits. Where has the time gone?

This picture of Qui and myself was taken the other day. I know. Qui had his eyes shut. He always blinks in front of a camera.

I would like to tell everyone out there that I’m doing fine and I miss all of you very much. But alas, this was something I needed to do. My brain was getting crunchy. My nerves a bit vamwoozally. And my bowels…well. I won’t go there. Suffice to say it wasn’t pretty. Qui and I are doing well. This cruise is wonderful and just what I needed for this time in my life. I’m even able to return to the book I’ve been writing all these years. Who knows, maybe I’ll finish it finally. And yes, the rumors are true, it is doubtful I will be returning (or at least any time soon). Know that I have enjoyed every moment of interaction with all of you out there. You guys are a swell bunch of people. (um…except for maybe Mace…his insisting we go to cucumber facials and crying therapy all the time kinda creeps me out.)

It has been golden age, looking at this past year. One that I doubt will ever be duplicated anytime soon, if ever. And I will always be glad I was a part of it.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to put a fresh dusting of sand down my shorts.

Have a brownie on us.

…or two or five.
