I returned this weekend from a second week away from home. It was the second trip of two: the first for business (San Fransisco) and the second for pleasure (Honduras).
Travel is a mess of contradictions. It is a joy; it is a pain. You are thrilled to arrive and happy to get … Continue reading
I’m leaving the country for a week for a bit of travel, and I didn’t plan ahead far enough to have Card-a-Day posts ready, so that feature will be on hiatus while I’m away. The daily feature will continue next weekend after I return.
I hope this does not cause too … Continue reading
Lately, I’ve been focused on preparations for upcoming travel, working on my urban development game, a little fiction writing, and some household tasks such as Spring gardening.

I started several posts, but they came apart in the writing. They’ll need some cleaning up first; I suspect you’ll see them eventually. When you write primarily for yourself, the last thing you want … Continue reading
I’ve been taking notes for a long time. And I keep everything, so I could tell you exactly how long, if necessary. I have Garfield notebooks from the early 1980s with all my grade school ideas for cool science fiction adventures or superheroes or video games I’d invent if I … Continue reading
You never really appreciate all the holes in your head until one or more of them becomes inoperable.

Glyphstone is at 21 posts and counting, so I thought it would be appropriate for a brief State of the Blog address. And, by brief, I mean six sentences.
