Happy Thanksgiving! I’m off in a bit for Thanksgiving dinner with some good friends, but I wanted to write a quick update since I haven’t been around in a few weeks.
Just before Halloween I wrote that projects were winding down and that it looked like I would have more time in November. In fact, I didn’t have to work very much at all, but my time was consumed with being there for friends in need. Several friends in multiple countries have been having some issues, and I’ve always been someone people feel they can talk to. So rather than having time off, I’ve pretty much spent the majority of my time listening and giving advice both in person and over Skype.
And while some of those issues are still ongoing and I’m still on call, I really want to get some writing done. With that in mind I’ve set aside tomorrow to work on a few posts I’ve been thinking about. After that I’ll disappear again as I’m hosting a Thanksgiving feast at my place this Saturday (since we don’t have the day off in Europe we always push our “official” Thanksgiving party to the weekend) and an eat-the-leftovers Indiana Jones marathon (though I think we’ll be skipping the fourth film) on Sunday. But next week I should have more time, so expect some new stuff from me soon.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving with family and friends!
