Consider this a variation on the oft-repeated theme in the blogosphere: blogger is long-absent from posting, returns with renewed vigor and faithful promises for frequent posts. 

My absence can largely be chalked up to some people-moving that’s been happening in my life (all good things, but a little more time-consuming than anticipated!).   The studio has not been idle space, though, and I have lots of fiber-related bits to show-and-tell.  I’ve also been trawling the web and finding lots of really top-shelf blogs, so look for a newly-updated blog roll in the near future.
