Eight weeks ago, I had a total hip replacement and have spent the time since in a rehabilitation facility. Hence no posts on my blog site. The world, nonetheless, continued on its merry way.

I have various thoughts to post on my blog, but I can’t think them through. The oomph is not there. When I have the energy available beyond body maintenance, I shall return.
