    And lo, the man from the mountain returns and he is me.

    Long have I wandered the mountains and valleys of the internet landscape. I have seen and experienced much that has influenced me these past years. I return as a man of many changes but also many similarities. I welcome the renewed friendship of past friends and wish a clean slate of forgiveness from past foes, transgressions (mine and others) and hostility.

    Some will probably doubt my intentions or (perhaps) hold a grudge, but I come before you with an open hand and open heart. My self-imposed exile was a journey for me to take. I only ask that my recent travels are not disparaged by those that have traveled a different path. I return because of changes here at USMB and changes within myself. It took changes of both for this decision of mine to come to fruition.

    I won't.

    Will you be gracious enough to not hold me responsible for the act of cat-kicking that was perpetrated by others? Or will you continue to hold that grudge simply because I posted it?

    Seems that we both have opportunities here.

    You have to get in the requisite number of posts again before you can post pictures?
