By the way — I’m back from Mississippi! My new nephew Ari is indeed adorable, as is newly appointed Senior Nephew Eli, and I got to spend plenty of time with them and my whole family. I don’t have much time for a long post, because the Backspace writing conference is underway, and I’ve got a panel to moderate tomorrow that I, uh, might not have begun preparing yet. Some furious note-taking must occur. But I will check in soon with a longer travelogue.
I missed you guys!
