...you hear that wonderful sigh? That's this lad settling in for an extended time of just hanging around home (and work). No big travel engagements awaiting, and none welcome at the moment. It's been a fun fall with some amazing opportunities and crazy schedules. But from here on out the schedule settles back to normal, to a (hopefully) predictable routine, and I can't wait. Ready for a long stretch of normal time at home. Time to sing in the church choir. Time to focus on the radio show. Time to focus on attending my own church (Thanksgiving and Advent and Christmas just around the corner). Time to start sketching the next book proposal. Time to sit in front of the fire with Cindi and enjoy the early evenings. Time to just breathe and be present in the moment and savor it to the fullest. Yeah, I'm looking forward to the next several months very much.
