Dear Readers,

Kindly forgive the hiatus. I have been traveling to parts unknown (well, actually Chicago–but allow me to maintain a semblance of intrigue), and I was unable to write any entries.  I am now preparing a follow up to my last piece, which concerned the chthonic Aztec god Xolotl who transformed himself into an axolotl to escape the wrath of his fellow deities.  This next post will also be about extinction and rebirth.  There will be tragedy and an unexpected escape to a new realm (as well as tantalizing hints at great breakthroughs in medical science).

Amphibian enthusiasts prepare!
