Bad weather and the threat of a transit strike notwithstanding, I spent most of Friday successfully relocating to Smalltown, U.S.A., where I now plan to spend the next two weeks doing next to nothing. Today, for instance, I have just two items on my truncated itinerary: (1) Shopping for heart-healthy food. (2) Answering my accumulated e-mail.
Regarding the e-mail, I want all of you to know how much your warm words have buoyed me up. I only hope that frequent blushing isn’t bad for the heart! I expect it’ll take the better part of the coming week for me to get back in touch with everyone, so please be patient. I don’t want to do this–or anything else–in a hurry.
I miss the blog very much, and I intend to post on occasion from Smalltown, though not obsessively. OGIC has been laboring mightily (and very successfully) to keep the content flowing in my absence, so I think I’ll let her do that for a little while longer, poking my head in at odd moments whenever I feel so moved.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go see whether there’s a grocery in Smalltown that sells Ry-Krisp….
