Time to do a little blog catch up. It's been a bit of an insane week. A few things pleasantly exploded around my life. I like that. The baby started walking, is teething in earnest and just plain cranking and not sleeping. So 3 nights with an hour or so of sleep slowed down the writing. Then we had 2 days of non-stop overlapping commitments which meant I lived in my van. Not a terrible thing, but it's a lot of time behind the wheel.
In the gap I thought of this post several times this week.
