Trust is a valuable thing. It is neither given nor taken lightly. When I invited the authors posting to Flowers for Socrates to participate in this forum, I did so because I consider them friends and I trust them with not only creating content for this growing blog but with the power and responsibility of being full editors on this site. It was (and is) trust well placed.
After a recent bout of the flu waylaid some of the authors here (including me), the FFS family stepped up admirably to help fill the content void. Everyone who participates here knows this. What everyone might not know is that almost to the day of my recovery from said flu, I was blindsided by a family crisis that has been monopolizing my time for the last week and promises to do so for the near future. The result of which has been I have had little (read: no) time to actively participate or create content for our fledgling forum.
While not abandoning this project by a long shot, I think that recognition is due to the FFS family for again stepping up and helping to keep this forum alive (and growing) in my partial absence. To the authors, I say, “Thank you for everything and your belief in this project.”
To our commentors, I also say thank you for making this the kind of forum I knew it could be and your continuing support.
I’ll be providing content and participating as time allows, but thank you all for keeping this forum vibrant while life’s unexpected duties keep me otherwise occupied.
