Ni ru cuyi dar'manda, ni ceta - I was not Mandalorian, and I humbly apologize.
I know I have been gone a long time. Though there were reasons for my absence (which I would be willingly to explain in more detail privately, but not perhaps publicly post in forum), I do not think any of those reasons give adequate justification for my being dar'manda for over a year now.
I do not know how many of ner vode still come here, I do not know how many of ner vode I will be able to make contact with again, and of those vode I can find I am not sure how many will welcome me back into our aliit.
But, you know, we Mando'ade are a stubborn lot. So, here I am. Ni cuyi Mando'ad - I am Mandalorian. And, I'll do whatever, take whatever licks are coming, to be back with my vode bal aliit - my brothers and my family.
Part father, part artist, part perpetual student, part gamer, part Japan-o-phile, part contrarian, part instigator, part anthropologist, part blacksmith, part costumer, part food lover, part writer, part adventurer, part eccentric...AN MANDO'AD!
