So, yes. I've been absent for quite some time. Last Tuesday, I finally started writing again. And last Tuesday, we got some pretty terrible news about a beloved family member. It's turned things upside down.
Now, the sunshine and light post I have saved in my drafts folder, the post I was literally in the middle of writing when I got the awful call, isn't right. But at the same time, this isn't blog material, and as weird as it always seems when you get that sort of news, life does go on. So, onward. Post in a minute with some Christmas-y stuff.
