There are so many people out there whom I owe an email or some other social contact. Rest assured that the reason you haven’t heard from me isn’t that I don’t care about you. No, the reason is that I’ve been all absorbed in my own little world here for a while and have been actively avoiding any email inbox which isn’t work-related.
My head is in the process of being pulled out of the sand. To you folks I send my most heartfelt apologies and my assurances that I’m working my way through the backlog. I don’t think I’ll be done before the end of the weekend, but keep hanging in there and your reply will come to you, hopefully sooner rather than later.
