My sabbatical is over, and back to routine tomorrow. I'm sitting here thinking of two comments by fellow friends/players, that they were not totally sympathetic to my situation. I don't blame them. If I were in their shoes, I'd feel that same way. And without going into details, part of me would like to say, "Are you jealous of my having to go through _____?" (Navi knows, and Guarf knows.) "Do you envy me this.........?" (My bank account knows.) Or, do you wish you had this? (Fill in the blank of some misguided bureaucrat sucker-punching your hopes and dreams.) Well - all that does occur at my job. But what they really should be jealous of is not the fact I got to derp around in Azeroth for two months, relatively unencumbered, and write a few stories, but what I get to go back to tomorrow. People who love me, people to whom I matter, and people who need me. Wish me well, my sweet guildmates--you should be jealous indeed.
