My apologies, I was out of commission for a number of months, primarily with a protracted hardware issue with Dell that wasn't resolved until until my son the engineering student came home from summer school in August, and I discovered that once I switched to a "gaming" grade mouse and then keyboard, my computer wouldn't freeze on me every 30 seconds to 5 minutes. In the meantime, I had survived on a smart phone, but I don't know if anyone hear has tried to work of NT with one of them: not recommended. Finally, I spent much of the last month on meditation retreats, and it's not been until really the last few days that the old spark has returned, only now reinforced with the understanding that even the most intense pain can be useful, as long as I offer it no resistance of any kind and learn to productively channel it's energy, which I am now resolved to do.
But that said, I must and do truly apologize to those whose PMs went unanswered (I responded to them overnight) as well as to anyone who was unable to get through.
So with that, I've purged the PM bolus. Fire away!
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.
