TO TIM THE IMPATIENT:

Why so suspicious, my friend? The "truth" is quite simple! I am just running WAY behind schedule with my work, but catching up, oh yes! Believe me, I have never worked so hard in my long life blunk
Just to clarify: I am perfectly healthy and happy, and the only time I am not working on this very complex new project, I am enjoying my first grandchild.
So there is no dark secret that we want to keep from you. Be patient, trust me, you will understand the long wait once you see and hear the result.
In the meantime, there's work to do: help to save the world, be well, enjoy the music, until you hear from me… when the time has come.
Best regards, Andreas
