This diary/blog has been operating for 11 years with entries on average, once every 3 days for over a decade. About two years ago, I decided that each year I would take a break from the diary for a short time. In light of my father's death, I think this would be a good time to take this year's break. I will post a tribute to my father here at the diary shortly. I will resume posting sometime before the 1st of November. Please stick with the diary and Three Worlds.
