I realize that everybody thinks I just stormed out in annoyance. Well, yes and no. What happened was that I had a stroke which left me blind and unable to communicate. It's taken me some time to accustom myself to my new circumstances, and to adopt and adapt to alternatives. I was in the middle of a paper by Oz which I have been trying to make sense of for some time ... and would like to pick up where he left off. Does he need a copy? Sky.

Thereby hangs a tale that we should not ask to be privy to, but welcome back! The rumors of your demise were way exaggerated to all our great relief. In honor of your return, you're not "Wrong!" for a day. Enjoy it!

Dey!

You have no idea how much I missed you.

Please drop me a note before I get exiled.

Wow. It's taken me a day to soak this in.

I didn't think you'd stormed out in annoyance, except perhaps as dying could be a form of storming out of life cuz one is sick of that old age decrepitude stuff.

Words struggle to express my delight at your reappearance. For now I'll just say 'huzzah!' and let that ring a bit.

le Dey!!!!

I want to hear all about your cyber-sight biofeedback rig or whatever it is by which you communicate through blindness.

le Dey!!!

Took me a minute to remember who 'Oz' is.

Wow - both Richard and Ken. I didn't realize you were still lurking, Ken.

Sorry to hear about your health problems Richard, and I hope you continue recovering and adapting as best you can.
