Don't Complain, Don't Explain

If I were a ship, I might get the above phrase carved on my masthead.
Barring that, I suppose I could tattoo it on my forehead.

Put another way; the deathless one-line rule for writers: show, don't tell.

(This is surely why I make so many faces; that and my grandma's face yoga, which has kept me supple as I inch my way toward the third-of-a-century mark.)

At right, I am showing, not telling, the bemusing challenge of unpacking
when you are addled by jetlag.

Don't complain, friends, and don't explain, but rest assured:
vacation (as you can see) has injected me with new life force
and the blog is up and running again.
