While it is unlike me to pull the plug on a ruse i've pulled before the completion of one of my favorite days of the year, i didn't want to go too far with my little April Fool's joke.
The post titled "Break" was indeed not a real announcement of a lengthy hiatus.
So, for those who left me such very kind wishes of a speedy return, i am very grateful for your words. While, i'm still experiencing the bitter aftertaste that i referred to here, i'll manage. Ole Deity was just having some good-natured fun on the first day of his birthday month. Sorry, i couldn't pass up the opportunity.
