Red Sky This Morning

I didn’t post here all weekend, and indeed, barely posted to Twitter, Facebook, or other social media. On Saturday, the heat just drained me, and I tried doing as little as possible. Yesterday, the weather was much nicer, but there was lots of small stuff going on.

I awoke this morning to a red sky out of my home office windows.

It it is a sign of cooler weather, I’m all for it. Saturday was blisteringly hot, and Sunday, finally cooled off. In fact yesterday evening was delightful, and we spent it barbecuing with friends.

I’m approaching the halfway mark on the final volume of William Manchester’s The Last Lion, and the truth is, I’m neglecting other things (like the blog) in order to squeeze in more time to read. Once the book is over, I expect things to return to normal around here.

I’m making some progress on the new story, although I restarted it yesterday because I realized that I’d been telling it from the wrong point of view. That said, I think it will go much more smoothly now. And I have a small backlog of nonfiction articles to work on. I’m nothing if not busy.

And as of yesterday, I’ve written every day for the last 413 days.
