Me: Khello, everybody!

Everybody: Hai, Dr. Josh!

Me: Thank you, but I’m not a doctor!

Everybody: Who cares?

Hi, it’s been a while. Work can sometimes take the majority of one’s focus, and I’ve had to prioritize my income over my love of writing here and interacting with all of you for the last few months. Hopefully, that’s over, and both are back to a happy balance. Inshallah.

Anyway, Expect more out of me over the next couple of days to weeks.

It feels really damned good to be back.

On behalf of everyone who has come here to hear your thoughts, but had gotten stuck with mine instead: Welcome back. We’ve missed you.
