  2. Glad-to-be-Back Ramble

    Just wanted to say how nice it is to be back on Basenotes after taking a break for awhile. It's not that circumstances really warranted any absence on my part, but once in awhile I "fall out" and come back. I suspect that I'm not the only person who does this. I actually do this with a lot of my other hobbies, leaving them for awhile and picking back up from time to time.
