It’s hard to believe it’s really 2010 already. Back when Arthur C. Clarke was writing some of his seminal work, we thought there’d be Moon bases by now, and exploration ships to Jupiter! Not to mention alien contact. I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer.
I hope you all had good holidays, and are hitting the ground running for the new year. It was a stressful season for the Carver household, with both daughters going through difficult times and my father-in-law hospitalized after a heart attack. On the positive side, things are moving in the right direction for everyone here in the immediate family, and with my brother and his girlfriend visiting for Christmas, we still had a good week in other ways. My older daughter is leaving in a couple of days for several weeks in Nicaragua (college service project), so that’s certainly going to be interesting to hear about.
Right now, I’m in catch-up mode. Haven’t gotten much done outside of family business for the last couple of weeks, so it’s time to reacquaint myself with my work! And yeah, that book I’m writing! What was it? Science fiction, I think. Something chaotic, anyway. Appropriate.
