I am in the dark netherworld of the last 22,000 words of a book due to my editor at the end of the August, which I hope is a grand enough excuse for not feeding my blog child. I will emerge again next Monday, hopefully 10,000 words closer to my finish line. So until then, no long, pithy blog posts. Actually, you won’t even get one next Monday, either. It’s looking more like September.
An no loose button-sewing or tortilla soup making or assistance with cleaning out your closet. Come back after Labor Day and we’ll talk.
In the meantime, do read my friend Lisa McKay’s blog today. She and her husband just moved to Laos and her blog posts are divine.
