I needed this break to allow myself to pursue higher degrees of psychosomatic development.
Well, no such crap. Was very busy with work, and even when there was no work, did not feel like blogging (like buddy Imse keeps warning about). I missed out commenting on the Katrina Sisters, the rains in South India, the IIPM fiasco, and a couple of other disasters like S.J. Surya's "A Aa".
I got two answers to my question: How to read everyone's blog and also leave comments? The answers are:
A. Quit your job
B. In your dreams (I'm choosing this)
Am feeling strongly lyrical these days. Half the time, I sit in my own living space and talk aloud in my mind like a half-baked Vairamuthu (with the same voice intonation). My blog may soon turn out to be like Monu's. Monu, I hope you have no copyright issues! :-)
Thank you to all my friends who kept enquiring about my well-being through blog comments/e-mail, and maintained a visitors' count of over hundred a day intact, despite my long respite.
