i'm here. i really am. but it is taking me far longer to get caught up with rest than i had anticipated, after my jaunt out to the beautiful west, and i have so very much to say and share about that trip that i keep putting it off just a little longer, and longer, then longer again. walter, as you can see, is glad to be back home where routine is supposed to be falling into place - glad to be home, but sad to leave his beloved friends in ohio behind.
in other words, the perfect trip, like mine. i'll catch you all up at the beginning of next week. for now, i give to you a tiny little glimpse of things to come... xo
