After much prodding by other bloggers, I set this up for my own writings. The name is in honour of the two women that mentored me throughout my life on politics and intelligence issues, as well as being wonderful family members, now alas deceased. I hope to live up to their standards at this site.

Returning from Exile

This is just a short note for now, but I have decided to start following political evens and commenting on them again. However, I stopped following all Canadian politics for the past six months, and stopped the American about three months ago because I was finding the stress of it combined with the uncertainty of my cardiac issues too much to cope with. Instead I indulged a hobby of mine and spent much of that period watching anime online instead. Man, I haven't seen that much anime in years, but I think it helped detoxify me enough to start handling politics again, and from what I read at Liberal Arts and Minds today regarding a possible election it may not be a moment too soon. I will be starting with commenting at some blogs as I spend the next little while catching up on what I've missed before I start blogging here at Saundrie on it, hopefully that won't take me too long to do.

As to the results of my cardiac testing, I appear to have a heart that adds beats periodically but aside from that they could not find anything else, so for now I am being discontinued from cardiac care/treatment by specialists until and unless something happens to change that picture. Needless to say I have not been enjoying this not knowing what was going on and why it was happening, but I went through that uncertainty for a decade with my blood condition before that question was answered so I guess I can cope with it again. I will add that my stamina/endurance has taken another hit but aside from that I am mostly the same as I was when I first started Saundrie.

Thank you to all my readers/friends online that were worried about me, I'm sorry you haven't sen/heard anything for the last half year, but I thought the only way I could enforce a rest from things political was to go complete cold turkey and stop paying any attention from any source. I was very touched by the comments wishing me well in the comments of my last post and I deeply appreciate them deeply. Hopefully I will not have to give any reason for a repeat of this for a long time to come. Well, see you all around over the next few weeks...
