I have a dear friend who keeps me fresh, disciplined, and paced. His name is A. Tuss. I greet him whenever he shows up - sometimes unannounced. He stopped by last week and I decided to spend time with him, showing him around my current and recent thinking and catching up on other things.
Of course, when he comes to town, other things sometimes take a back seat. That is why we say, Hi! A. Tuss! (or, in case you are a little slow or I am a little obscure in my presentation, "hiatus."
At any rate, I am back.
