Arrived at the hotel in time to go to lunch with a small crowd. Mmm, Mangia Pizza. Got back, did a chapter of Escapement, then loitered in the bar with a bunch of very intelligent reprobates (conversation ranged from railroad pulps to the way people read), did meet-the-pros, went to Maureen McHugh's reading, then had my own. I read "Witness to the Fall", which I wrote recently and virtually no one has seen.

Breakfast tomorrow with davidlevine and kateyule (yes, we live in the same town), the autographing and the Howard Waldrop interview. I like it here, but there's a slightly odd overlay of seeing old friends with new eyes. The world changes, and so do I.

The world changes?! No! Say it isn't so.

Thanks for con-blogging. I couldn't go, as I'm stuck here with the broken kneecap in the immobilizer/brace and going to physical therapy three times a week for torture. Can't ride in the front seat of the car until the knee bends better. So anything you care to mention about the panels or the events will be fascinating. Say hi to Linda and Juli and Kathy when you see them (at least two of them will probably be dancing for Yard Dog!)

Subject: I'm not proud of that
You didn't ask for comments on the previous, but I have one anyway. Be proud of that. It is sometimes the only way to both protect yourself and keep the process from escalating.

I know it makes you sad, but think how much sadder you'd be if you invited the person to keep reopening the wound. And they would. You took the high road.
Be glad. Leila
