I must apologize for the recent spell of dryness here at The Supplement. A number of factors have conspired against me, but the most significant was a period of prolonged illness beginning in the middle of last month and only really clearing up entirely in the last week or 10 days. I was literally flat on my back in bed for two weeks, and not much use for anything for another week or more after that. Not nice.
The sequel to that has been a fair degree of busyness at the office, along with attempting to catch up on various things around the house that went to seed during my convalescence.
Along about the same time, I'm entering into something of a transition from the sort of reading I've been doing almost exclusively for over three years. I've been reading philosophy and theology during that time, but this year I'm intent upon doing something to learn Latin (one of the many gaps in my pitiful government school education). So far Latin has not inspired new blog posts for me - maybe when I get to start reading useful things in Latin, that will change, but grammar is not a treasure chest of subject matter to me. :-) I still intend to read theology and philosophy of course, but at a more leisurely pace.
Lastly, I've been a bit put off by a perceived pointlessness in quarreling with Protestants for some time now, and that interaction with them has inspired quite a few posts here. Between the change of focus in my reading, and having dropped off the radar on other blogs, things have gone rather quiet here. I apologize for this to you, my readers. I hope to resume regular blogging here without delay.
