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.
