I’m sorry to have been silent for so long.
And I’m sorry to tell you that I’m going to be silent for another week and a half, because tomorrow evening E.S. and I are going to Egypt for ten days.
I am visiting the land of my Ur-oppressors.
Or, if you prefer, I am returning to the land where my people were slaves in the house of bondage.
I leave the BDSM joke up to you.
