As you might have guessed from the absence of my usual verbosity on yesterday’s posts, I have found myself at something of a loss for words. But I can assure you the situation is temporary. You would have to quite literally rip my tongue out by the hinges and cut off both my hands (maybe even gouge out my eyes – I’ve been told they’re quite expressive) to keep me from commenting on Akaash’s sudden departure yesterday. My mind is simultaneously overcrowded with other people’s opinions and empty of hard facts.  Not that I’ll necessarily have more facts in hand tomorrow, but I’m hoping that another night’s sleep will help me with the words that seem to be evading me today.
