Hello, working on being, "back in the groove again."

Hello Sky Searchers,

I haven't participated in the Sky Searcher's forms this winter.
I'm working on being more sociable since being bunkered up this winter fighting my demons.
I will not rationalize my behaviors and just saying, I'm back again to participate in this outstanding group.
It's one place to go to receive outstanding feedback.
Thanks for Sky Searchers.
