August and September are my two favorite months of the year where I live. If there are no hurricanes, the weather can be and has been idyllic with warm, sunny days and cool, starry nights. The local produce is at its most varied and best quality and the scenery is spectacular. Taking the time to enjoy all of that along with having all my children home together for a short spell, other family events, and a general need to recharge my own creative batteries has resulted in a bit of a hiatus from writing and posting detailed new content here. To those who may have noticed, thank you for your continued attention. I expect to be returning to my usual posting schedule some time in mid-September.
