Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
It’s been so long since we last spoke I find myself unsure of what to say.

I will return in the fall, with tales of trips, and long reports entitled What I Read on My Summer Vacation. Until then, fair winds and following seas. Hmmm. I wonder if I can fit any more clichés into this post...?
