Well, that was nice. I ate strangely and read a lot of A Dance with Dragons. I watched Youtubia in a stream of consciousness way. Found this goodness:
Learned that before you have a stroke you smell burning toast.
Fasted on Lammas, thinking of that saying, "When you're full, remember what it is to be hungry."
And I discovered a tv show I actually like, "Perception." I'd avoided it like the plague but it's not bad at all.
I did nothing but bare essentials.
Didn't answer emails or return calls.
Of course, that didn't mean anyone else slowed down. I have a lot to do come Monday. Fridays in the Summer are useless to get anything serious done. I'll ease back into things over the weekend, do the family catchups, answer the emails.
One thing I know is that people have to take a break from writing books. I have too many friends and acquaintances with books coming out, month after month. Really, this has to slow down. I can't read that fast anymore because if I do I don't recall anything. And they add up expensewise. So quit publishing until 2013. I should be caught up by then.
Speaking of, I saw a review of Michael Lloyd's book here and found out that another guy from the Magickal Childe years has also written a wayback machine book
I don't think I've seen Wasserman since 1995. I emailed him once years ago; he didn't reply.
And Wayne Kernochan's been banging books out like no tonorrow. I just ordered this one
(this is the Kindle version)
There's a new ELP bio coming
And of course Greg's full book-form autobio will be out at the end of the year.
So yeah, everyone take a break. I recommend it.
I'll be back later with news.
