Off to Seattle first thing in the morning to put the golden handcuffs back on. Will try to post while I’m away. On the one hand, I’m really glad to be going back to work, especially since I have trouble organizing my day when I have too much free time. I’m also looking forward to working with this team — I know and like them all, and it seems like a really congenial and supportive group. So, despite my worries about backsliding in my creative and writing lives, I’m kind of excited to be going back to Corporate Life (and to saying goodbye to nightmares about losing my house, at least for a little while). Plus, a city visit! Asian food! Oysters! Multi-ethnic populations! and a visit with my Beloved Stepmother. All good things. Back Friday.
