And you worry about us?!

This post keeps scurrying around in my mind, but each time I try to get it down things don't come out quite right. I have written it in my head, typed it out (and deleted it), and talked about it with friends, yet I haven't published it.

I have finally decided that it is not going to come out 'right' and that I am not going to be able to fully develop my thoughts. Perhaps they need more incubation time.
