OK gang, by the time you read this I'll be well on my way. I'll resume posting on 17 August but that certainly doesn't mean that nothing's going on here while I'm gone. I have eight guest bloggers lined up and they represent as many different walks of life as they do different locations. There's a kitchen designer from Honolulu, a biologist from Pennsylvania, an American expatriate from Buenos Aires, a professional writer from New York, a professional writer from Miami, another biologist (this one's from Gainesville, FL), a waiter from New Orleans and an art historian turned writer and soon-to-be architect from the Midwest. I'm grateful of course and thrilled at the idea that all of this is going to unfold over next nine days and I won't see any of it until I get back. Stay tuned, be supportive, leave comments and have fun!
