Note about an absenceEdit

My apologies to any editors that I left hanging with my sudden and prolonged absence from Wikipedia. Life circumstances (all good things) caused me to take some time away, but I'm excited to be getting back to it, albeit in a more limited capacity than my previous periods of editing.
