From the King James Bible,
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
A time to pause
Friends, for the foreseeable future I will no longer be writing here on a regular schedule; bigger projects are in the works. Which is not to say that I'll forgo posting - rather that any posts henceforth will be prompted by necessity and not by whim; inspired by the muse, not by the mood.
Bear with me.
