To my friends at ScareFest,
As you likely know by now, I am not well enough to attend this year's
I was overzealous in the expectations of my recovery. When it became clear that I would be unable to travel to Cherry Hill, and to Lexington, the most difficult part for me was the prospect of disappointing, you. That is why I say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your outpouring of supportive and loving messages throughout all of this. They help me return to my desk each morning. They keep me warm in the dead of night.
I hope to be able to see you all very soon.
