My deep apologies to all; I've really fallen down on my newsletter
responsibilities this year. I've now missed not one, but two issues
(spring and summer), and I promised Catherine faithfully to have a
newsletter up before October Crown, which isn't going so well either.

The short explanation is Life, Health and Job; fortunately the Health
and Job prospects are looking much better. I've gotten through the
"rush" season at work and things should be much easier between about
now and February -- temporary crises, maybe, but not a constant
onslaught that leaves me exhausted all the time. As for health, some
of you know I have chronic depression, and I'm currently not having a
lot of success coping with it, especially not on weekends. I managed
to thoroughly exhaust myself last spring and I think I've finally
caught up with that. The cooler weather is helping.
Catherine has convinced me I should ask for some assistance, so here
is my request: I'm in need of an assistant to help me with the more
"mundane" aspects of the newsletter. Mostly what I need is someone
rather more organized than I am, who can take over some of the
scheduling responsibilities and help me get everything assembled in a
timely fashion. If you're interested in working with me on this,
please e-mail me privately.
Again, my apologies. I will continue trying to get the next
newsletter finished this week, and I hope to see you all at Crown.
