    I felt the lull too. I am recovering from it. We can't have a dull forum now, can we?

    Like the ebb of a wave? A lull that's part of a large dynamic force.

    It's not just you. I'm noticing a lot less traffic here at the forum as well, and even a significant drop in the number of active posters — it is calculated against a 30-day period.

    Maybe everyone is left drained from the run-up to the 2016 US presidential elections. It was such a hot topic everywhere, and people put so much energy — or should I say "loosh"? — into vocalizing their opinions and/or giving in to their respective fears. It was a highly polarizing event — look at what it did to bsbray, and he wasn't the only one affected by it in such an extreme degree — so now that the adrenaline rush is over, people may be feeling a bit lost.

    In a way, it's not dissimilar to war veterans coming home from Iraq or Afghanistan after several years of combat. For all of the time that the war was going on, the soldiers were putting all of their energy into their survival and their attempts to defeat The Enemy™, but when the war then comes to an end or if the soldiers are releaved of their military duty for another reason — e.g. they got badly injured in battle and they are sent back home — then these people find themselves detached from their earlier lives and their families, even from themselves as individuals.

    I'm not saying that the above would be the only factor at play here — there was a similar lull already earlier this year, which is why you started this thread in the first place — but I'm convinced that the commotion regarding the now past-tense US presidential elections would at least in part be responsible for the lull we're experiencing right now.

    There may be the factor of having a huge timeline change happen, that is a wee bit of what I am getting.

    I agree with the above and will add the waning of a super Moon to the mix for the lull that is obvious.

    Funny, I now got that feeling that what is coming, like just around the corner, is terribly exciting, indeed miracle like.

    Does that mean you're actually going to dig up that tuxedo from underneath the mothballs?
