Yes, The Mad Monarchist is still alive and kicking, or just alive anyway. Will it be back to the old routine? Certainly not, at least not for now. I have enjoyed my time off too much and been too often reminded of what drove me to step back in the first place. However, posting will begin again very shortly. The difference will be that, for now, posts will be few, far between and probably erratic by which I mean there will be no regular schedule to keep to but that they will come now and then as I find the time and am moved to post them. If I can find some way to avoid the strain on my nerves it may be possible to do more but, for the time being, I will not be making any changes like disabling the comment section or shutting down the Facebook page as I have been tempted to do. For the moment, I will simply be posting less frequently, saying what I please, when I please and see how that goes. The standard of judgement for that, I will keep to myself as undoubtedly no one wants to hear any more of my troubles or complaints. I had wondered if I would be able to stay away after doing this for so long and, after more than a month, I have found out that I certainly can and have had no trouble filling my time as well as receiving regular reminders that I am probably just not cut out for this sort of thing. So, I am placing myself under no pressure, I do have a couple of articles ready to post and anyone interested can watch this space as, for the time being, there will be the occasional updates to it again. My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who voiced their support, I can honestly say that, limited as my return may be, it would not be happening at all without you. I appreciate all of you who have stuck it out through this dry spell and would just encourage everyone to keep any expectations low.
Remember, you are not dealing with a "well" person but The Mad Monarchist
