It seems that my mind and body determined that I needed a more substantial break, so I’ve been doing some reading.  About a week ago I finished Richard Wright’s Black Boy.  I made some notes comparing Wright’s Mississippi to the Mississippi in which I grew up.  I also found comfort in some of the parallels between Wright’s experience of moving from the south to Chicago and mine moving from the south to California.  I’m still working through some thoughts on this, but I will definitely post something.

I’m almost done with the redesign of this site.  I hope to finish this week.  And though I didn’t get in my first interview in July, I am still working on that.

So, new things coming soon.
