Hello goodbye.

After weeks away from posting, I'm here to deliver two images from that time, to reassure you that I'm still alive, and to say that I'm leaving again (this time for the monastery) and won't be back for a good ten days. 

It's been a hectic, hectic July, even if not as hectic as June was.  It's possible that hectic--outwardly, at least--is going to be the way of the world for quite some time.
