Unfortunately, it has not been due to work, Paul, that I have been absent. It has been mainly wear, I am quite variable in dedication to things... however I have a place in my heart for anyone I meet in my path and I find to have good will, an I have not ever forgotten the many of such kind I here met.

So it may be good to also point here in the benefit of the less experienced students and architects that the freelance exercise of our profession is (has always been) under assail, precisely because it represents an independent eye and opinion (even if only "technical") on what is to be built, and how.

So, one can't expect pure "architectural" ideas to be built but rarely, for in most building activity the more mundane approaches prevail, neglecting even technical design, nor to say "artistic".

In this world, one that choses to be an architect faces quite assuredly some adversity, and with this I am not meaning only the commonners, even the many times -if out of nature- acritical big teams surely become overstrained on letting do what they wouldn't want to.

The good part is that the hard work that makes mediocrity prevail creates more than enough good background for any geniality be visilbe, which I salute from here wherever it may have appeared.
