After eight months in Makati, the Philippines, I have relocated again to the West, not permanently, but for the time being.

To those who have grown accustomed to daily posts here, I beg your pardon. I am quite alive, quite well; just endeavouring to make the transition from East to West as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Thank you for your interest in what I write. I will need only a couple more days to get back in the saddle.

Fondest and best regards to all.
