Sitting in Michael's Lap
You are forgiven, and in fact, you are to be both thanked and congratulated ... thanked for not letting this one pass me by, and congratulated on another beautiful piece of writing. Welcome back, Beki, you've been missed ... and what do you mean by letting your real life interfere with your postings..?!?
"Nunc lento sonitu dicunt, morierus"
(Now as I hear this bell tolling softly for another, it says to me, "Thou must die.")
