Hi, to any who will read this.

So I've been away from the Amp for quite a long time, though this doesn't mean that my care for the site and it's members have in any way diminished. Not in the least!

It was a shock for me to read that Ralph (Flyer7747) passed away, but I'm glad someone took the effort to let me know. And then I read about TritonKeyboarder's loss of his dog Cedric last year, and more recently, his mom. Wow, has it been that long ago since I last visited them? Although it shouldn't be too hard for me to log into BandAMP periodically and stay up to speed with things, it's somehow faded from my system.

This is mainly because there's been a lot of things going on in my life. I'm in a job transition period (which stretches across many month, over half a year now and there's no end to it yet) and I've been playing in a new band (Mistaken Saints) while my old band UMF has kicked the bucket. We're currently working on recording an album and we have a bunch of gigs coming up.

Also, I've sought medical attention to learn to deal with (as it turns out) a sleeping disorder and have been diagnosed with being on the autism spectrum along the way (yey) and as a result I've experienced massive "untangling" and "growth" of my persona over the past year. Positive stuff.

Then my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer and was subsequently succesfully prostatectomized, so hopefully that's the end of that, but it's been a tense time for the family. Unfortunately some other people close by weren't as fortunate and sadly fell away before their time... A lot of sad news seems to be reaching me these days. Such is life, I suppose.

Anyway, I will put it in my system to periodically check back on the Amp. There's great people on here, and not in the least, some very good music too.

And it is my intent to keep adding to that in futures to come.
