Wow. What a ride. As of today, things are back to normal at work, I think. Mind you, the definition of "normal" will be moving somewhat as our business parameters change, but I should now return to my normal day job / personal time / writing schedule. Escapement awaits me. I have some editorial reading to do Real Soon Now, and I owe a couple of anthology stories which have languished, so I probably won't be back on the novel til the middle of the weekend.

The day job lately has been real head-bender, but also an interesting experience. I always learn, but sometimes I learn a lot more, a lot faster, than others. "All is grist," as somebody says. (Which beats the snot out of "all is grits" if you ask me.)

the_child is New England for another week or so. This means it will be quiet when I get home. I may need to lay around and twitch for while. lasirenadolce should be on the scene this weekend, which will be very nice.

Only one link this morning, so it doesn't get its own post. Still, this is fascinating:

Time May Not Exist — Physicists fooling around with Planck-scale time intervals, or the lack thereof.

Oh, that made my brain hurt. It's far too early in the day/week/month for that sort of thing.

It sounds to me like you've not had properly prepared grits.

Okay, Jay. Who pays you to torture us like that? Regarding "Time May Not Exist," I'll have to think about that one. The difficulty is that we don't even know how many realms are out there, let alone the rules that govern them and influence our own.

What I look forward to (and, admittedly find a bit scary) is the moment when our brains finally GROK some of the critical elements of it all. What will we be able to do? How will we evolve to the knowing? Hmmmmmmm.... If there is no time and our thoughts create our universe....

I need more caffine...
