    Back in business

    Posted by: Chris

    Riodejaneiro It has seemed like a lifetime that I've been on the road, living out of a suitcase and relying on the kindness of friends in Memphis, Atlanta, São Paulo and Washington, D.C. Finally yesterday I arrived back in Rio De Janeiro -- reunited with my other half and ready to resume my regular blogging schedule.

    My two months back in the States were almost double the longest length of time I've had apart from my partner since we met almost four years ago. The distance seemed multiplied by illness and death in both our families during this same period and at times it felt like we would never be together again.

    But here we are, back in Rio, and now life may resume what has passed for normal for us for two years now.  I want to thank many friends for their support, with special appreciation for William, Cynthia, Steve, Jeff, Chris and Robert, as well as to my parents, for going above and beyond each in their own way. Last but not least, thanks so much to all of you who have taken the time to post comments or send me notes expressing your support and sympathy. It's meant the world to me!

    Now back to the business of blogging, and thanks again to Andoni for doing such a wonderful job holding down the fort in my absence.

      Glad to have you back. But not nearly as much as Andy is, I'm sure.
