It’s been over a week since I posted here. I deeply regret this long silence, far and away longest I’ve gone without posting in the move than 6 years I’ve been writing this blog. I could offer all sorts of exuses, but I don’t like excuses so I’m not going to do that. I have been working on more of the Inviting the Avalanche posts and will get back to posting them shortly. Thank you for your patience.
