And So It Begins

As most blogs go, it has been a while (again) since my last post.

It seems fitting (and lamely expected) that this blog gets a restart, as one does.

Will things be different this time, here at the dawn of the year? How many posts will it take before things grow cold again? Is it because I can’t sleep at the moment? I don’t want to answer these right now. All I want is to post .

Happy 2015 folks. May all our beginnings be blessed with persistence and consistency.
