The Sound of Silence

I knew I was going to be taking a break, but I didn't realize just how much of one. I am still on hiatus and will be for a while yet. Let's call it a summer leave of absence (or is that leave of my senses?).

Between lack of motivation to blog, work/school, and Netflix (evil, evil, Netflix, tempter of the mind) all grabbing my attention, getting the gumption to write anything for the blog has been like seeking a quantum needle inside Schrodinger's cat.

Other items of note:

The Traveller Firefly story arc has come to completion (for now) and when I get the will to write again, it will be chronicled here.

A friend of mine is in the hospital. His heart cannot handle his current body weight and maintain proper circulation. A couple days ago he underwent implantation of a pacemaker and is now, according to another friend "a cyborg". I'll spare the other details except to say his survival has not been a given and he has had to be resuscitated a number of times. Here's hoping he will be able to continue gaming for years to come.

Also, another blog to visit is that my friend Steve has created. It is currently sparse for posts, but if enough folks go over there and drop him a comment I'm sure he can be coaxed into posting more frequently.
