The big exhalation

As the year winds down, I find I have a surfeit of interesting things to think, write, and talk about but an overwhelming desire to sit and stare at a fireplace warmed only by a string of chili lights.

I’ll be in New York for about a week before Christmas, returning to Oakland on the 27th.

I’m done with my work for the year (available for new projects starting January, but if you need me for something, act soon, as I’m may soon be tying up a lot of time until May), coasting through the holidays, the solstice if not the apogee, the return to ground zero, and the new year.

Anything I post after this is gravy.
