Thank you to (the late) Robert Pastorelli for capturing the feeling of what I’ve been hearing from folks back east (and elsewhere) — and saying to my own damned self no matter where I’ve been — since last summer. It’s been so long that it took me a few minutes to even find the log-in page for this damned blog. And I know I’ve said this — and written it, here — a thousand times before but…THIS time I’m gonna be more diligent. I mean it. So, you’ve been warned.
