Dear Friends

As many of you read in my previous post, I am a New Orleans resident and was displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Though I have been able to maintain my sites due to the graciousness of my hosts (my significant other’s parents) and their Internet access, it’s very likely that these next few days I will not be able to post an update to the site.

As a resident of Algiers, I am being allowed to return tomorrow, Monday the 19th, to my home. Though I am excited about going and the word appears to be very good, I don’t know what to expect when I get there.

It’s highly likely that my Internet and phone access will be out upon my arrival. Though we have gas and water, which are definitely more important, I will be very limited in my communications during that time.

Though it’s my hope that everything will be normal and I can just hit the ground running, I know it’s not likely. As such, don’t expect an update for this site tomorrow (Monday) or the day after (Tuesday). I’ll do what I can to get back in touch, but please understand that the situation is very uncertain at the moment.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. It means a lot during these very odd times. I promise to be back as soon as feasible. No matter what, it shouldn’t be more than a few days.

Take care and I’ll speak to you soon.
