I am Timothy Capps, Esq., the attorney and "human agent" for the writer of this blog, St. Corbinian's Bear. It came to my attention that this blog has been neglected and I made diligent inquiries regarding the Bear. It is my duty to inform any remaining readers that I have been unable to locate the Bear and can provide no information at this time regarding his intentions toward this blog.
The Bear had instructed me a couple of years ago to do as I saw fit with this blog in the event of a lengthy, unexplained absence. In all likelihood, I will put this blog and the (for want of a better term) "Bear brand" in mothballs, possibly offering the few remaining die-hard readers the opportunity to migrate to a different blog reflecting my own interests and style. I will do so only if I believe I would do no disservice to his loyal friends or his spirit of intelligent and forthright inquiry.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the readers and supporters of this blog. I know that your friendship meant much to the Bear.
I would like to clear up any confusion that may have been inadvertently created regarding authorship of the novel Judging Angels and Saint Corbinian's Bear Lenten Companion for Bearish Humans. Certainly, the Bear provided kind assistance in these works, and lent his name and fictionalized history to the one. However, I was the sole author of Judging Angels and co-authored the Lenten Companion with my wife, Kathryn.
I also wish to make it clear that the Bear, shall we say, took artistic license by incorporating alleged elements of my own life's story in his articles. I even tolerated the appropriation of my wife's identity in the thinly-veiled character of "Red Death." Readers will understand, of course, that our talented ursine friend used many devices to relate to his human readers.
In other words, I am me and the Bear is the Bear. I'm sure we all wish him the best, wherever he is.
