Hello, friends! First of all, let me say again how grateful I am for the support I have received so far. It's been encouraging indeed.

Second, blogging will certainly continue -- though probably not at a rapid pace for the next few weeks. Some long-term family health issues have me under the cosh (a British expression I am excessively fond of). I will have to suspend my newsletter for a while, and decline to take on any new writing projects, until things get better -- but, again, blogging won't stop altogether.

Third: When I am confident that I will be able to blog at full speed, as it were, I will introduce the option of a monthly subscription. But not until I know I can justify that kind of support. So stay tuned for news on that front ... eventually.

Thanks again to all!
