    Dear Origin,

    I wanted to write you all to let you know that I have not left you, or the EM program. I am still here and still, mostly, alive. However, this is one of the times where that annoying thing called real life has dealt me a bit of a bad hand.

    I’m currently engaged in a priority one customer project at work. We hit a critical issue with one of our customers and I have been leading the team to try to resolve it. I’ve been working over 80 hours a week for the past few weeks and don’t see that changing for at least the rest of this month. I’m seriously not exaggerating when I say if I’m not sleeping, I’m working on this project. I’m eating my meals in front of the computer trying to sort through and straighten this out.

    Unfortunately, it leaves very little time for family and no time for my Origin family currently. I promise you, I have not left you and I will be back in holding events, telling stories, threatening to cook things and just generally enjoying you all just as soon as I can. For the time being, however, I have to take care of this. I’m hoping to have it wrapped up by the end of the month, or, at the least, in a good enough state that it won’t require all of my waking time and energy.

    A good flamestrike spell wouldn’t go amiss if anyone has one to spare…a time travel or “slow time down and let me catch up” spell would be nice too…

    With heartfelt apologies and a promise to return as soon as humanly possible.
