Our good old friend Dr. Charles is signing off from blogging:
The main reason I am taking a break, perhaps a long break, is that my life, like yours, only allows me a finite amount of time for pursuing an avocation. I’d like to try to work on a book. It’s a story you might read one day, or it might simply rest on my bookshelf, unpublished. But it is the writing of the thing that I feel passionate about.
