One of my still-favorite memorized bits of poetry from my childhood is from Robert Frost and his "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening":
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
Please don't think I have backed away from this blog; I may enjoy my blogging more than you enjoy reading it.
But, like Robert Frost, these days I've simply had too many miles to go and too many things to do before I sleep (or write).
Among the promises I'll keep is this one to you: I'll be back as a regular soon.
R.A.T. (Rose About Town) Busy!
