I know it has been a while. I promised you a lot of things and then I disappeared. What had happened was … I was kidnapped.
Hello! How are you? It seems like we haven’t spoken in ages, right? I’ve been having conversations with you in my head a lot lately, but it never seems to go further than that. The minute I think I can sit down and catch up with you, something happens. Or I get an unexpected surprise at my door step. Life has been a bit overwhelming as of late and I don’t get in front of you as much as I’d like. I hope you’ll forgive me. See what happened was . . .
