When I wrote my first "return" GAZETTA, I expected I would resume writing here as I did in the past albeit on a reduced scale. I think maybe I did post one. Anyway, my energy wanes, my focus is not clear, and clarity was my overall goal above all, even at the expense of good taste, modesty and decorum. My treatment makes even the modest goals in that regard very difficult. Heck, even my renowned typing skills have suffered.
I wanted to tell you all this lest you harbor doubts about my sincerity in returning as a NUGie. I read posts, but before I can comment I lose the train of thought; hell, I can't even see the caboose. I am still working and that has drained me too. I am also writing a very limited, very personal sort of narrative in the manner of a memoir on a non-sports related blog. Limited in scope, and limited in audience, it is very important to me, if not vital to, finish it.
So that is my explanation for my reticence. I still read here, and I am gratified to say this is still as informative-and-yet-off-the-wall as it gets anywhere on SB as far as I can tell. I'm glad I was a part of it; y'all have kicked it higher.
Many of you may wish inquire about my status. It is not good, not good at all. But I, as you, remain a Bronco. We know that though the clouds be dark, there is a wondrous BLUE sky above them. We know that though the sun sets, it it showers resplendent ORANGE across the universe, announcing that this day existed, and nothing that comes after that can ever erase it. This fall, when many of you do as the above quoted song says to see our Boise State team, remember, I will be there. Until then, I am here with you now, and will try to let you know as often as I can.
And as always, keep in your hearts the motto of our city and university:
SPLENDOR SINE OCCASU
