Hello readers, it’s been a while. I just wanted to wish you all a happy Christmas and a joyous New Year. As you have no doubt noticed, I have been absent from the Internet for the past few weeks. This has been because of a combination of sickness and family hardship, but I plan to come back full force in January. Until then, I wish you all the best, and thank you for reading and writing with me in 2012. If you want to read the few things I have managed to produce in December, head over the The Blackened Edge to read some of my music criticism.
