[travel] Flying home to Oregon

This morning has me up and out early to catch my plane home to Oregon. I'll be back to Omaha in mid-August. For now, I am away. There are thunderstorms in this morning's forecast here, but I think we'll be out before they become an issue. After that, it's just whiling away the miles while the empty air slides away beneath me.

I usually write on planes, but today, I think I'll read.

[personal] Taking the weekend off

The Going to Extremes outline is in the can, pending a few more days to steep and a light revision pass of the China chapter. I've completed my recent read through of Other Me, and need to let it steep a few days before I dig into more serious revisions. The Sekrit Projekt is in good shape and awaiting some business input next week. And I have a friend in town this weekend.

So I'm taking the weekend off. Possibly no blogging at all, possibly light blogging if I feel so moved. I'll be back on the normal broadcast schedule next Monday.

Y'all play nice while I'm gone.
