God Save Florencia!
God Save the Nimlet!

Greetings, fellow Talossans, and especially my fellow Florencians,
Given my need to concentrate on extra-Talossan activities for the past many months and couple years, I imagine that the reaction of Senator da Lhiun is shared by many of you. Indeed, when I was approached about this potential appointment, I myself wondered if my time-commitments were finally sorted out to the point where I could do justice to such an important position. At length -- having settled myself into a new place of employment after about four months of uncertainty (preceded by a great many months of ominous Bad Things happening at my former workplace), among so many other things that have taken my time since the deaths in my extended family first took me from activity as your Seneschal --, I decided to consider the request to serve my nation again, rather than dismiss it out of hand.
The nation should know that I certainly would never have sought this office, given my absence from this forum especially (although I have kept up with the nation's current events though other channels, of course). Consistently knowing my obligations, I have even refused Cosa seats through my period of preoccupation with other things. For the good of the nation, my thoughts about serving it during that time had to be, "If nominated, I will not run, and if elected, I will not serve." Now, though, a loophole seems to have been found, in that I find myself neither nominated nor elected, but rather appointed.
I am not at all pleased with the necessity of this appointment, given that it is only coming about due to the unfortunate loss of two active and much-respected Talossans and Florencians, the d'Auribuergs, who I (with others, I am sure) hope will at some point reconsider their renunciations and return to this great nation.
So it is with some initial reluctance, but with a new fount of energy sustained by at least a little more free-time, and determined to make the most of it, that I accept this appointment to represent the interests of the nacho-shaped province in the Talossan Senate. It is my hope and believe that I can finally, at long last, try to get things back to a long-missed Normal for me, which includes making more time for Talossa in my life.
I ask all of you to support me in my return to service, and to assist me in ensuring that it is indeed a return, and not another of my "I think I can make time for Talossa again" false-starts. I thank you all in advance for this assistance, and for welcoming me back home (I hope, at least a little bit happy to see me, for I am happy to be returning).
(And yes, my reinvolvement should hopefully also mean that noastra bel glheþ will see me working for it more actively again; I know the third edition of the Guizua Compläts is overdue and much-requested.)

V: Applause to the fun and civil debates going on right now on disparate issues concerning the Organic Law. My hat is tipped to the substantive and civil nature that all particpants are employing in their responses. It's refreshing.
