I've just gotten home and am going through my mail. It's a day for unpacking, organizing, trying to remember and reinstate my routines, and figuring out which way is up. I like days like this. They're cozy and slow, and I don't put a lot of pressure on myself. Especially since I handed in a draft right before I left, I have the added pleasure of deciding what I'm writing next. This thing that I probably should work on, or that thing that's knocking on my door, begging to be worked on?

Just Checking in from Oslo

Dear Readers,

Just wanted to report that I'm back in Oslo, after 2+ spectacular weeks of sailing around the western and northwestern coast of Spitsbergen, Svalbard, in the tall ship Antigua, with a group of wonderful artists, guides, and crew.

No problem, right? I'll pack this weekend and have a few days next week for the last-minute scramble as I suddenly remember a whole slew of things I need to do before I fly to Svalbard. While I'm aboard the ship, I won't be able to blog, but I'll be storing up pictures and stories to share for when I get back. And that's the news from here. Oh, also, this blog post is dedicated to the Cleveland Browns. :o)
