June 27-July 3, 2009

I'm flying to the states early next week, so this week was all about getting my pages updated far in advance. In fact, from Sunday until today (Friday) I hadn't been out of the building, and only once left my rooms, to go to another floor and check out the goods being sold by friends who are moving.

Yes, a rather boring life.

But the writing has been great; I'm so excited about doing this that I don't even miss little things, like sunshine.

So here's the week's publication at Much more on its way.

Production note: As I travel, I may miss some blogs and such. But most of the pages should be posting automatically.

Wisdom Blogs:
