Friends, I’m away! (Again, yes. As I write this, I’m sitting right at the back of South Africa’s famed Blue Train, watching the rails appear as we speed along, and cosseted in all manner of comfort.) But I so appreciate your visit. I had planned out some awesome posts, I really had, and made the...
