In other news, I’m currently packing furiously. I’ll be scheduling some posts to go up over the next week or so, since I’ll be driving west to Oakland, CA, and will have little or no internet access during the drive and probably until I actually find an apartment. Anyone with a nice, inexpensive, one room apartment or studio in the area is welcome to email me with details.
Meanwhile, you’ll be enjoying a selection from the archives.
