I haven't really been writing the past few weeks. Too much reading, too much Civilization for the DS, too much willingness to be distracted. But now the books are all but read and I'm passing Civilization on to my friend Michael for his trip to Japan. And yesterday I started writing notes again in my notebook again. So hopefully, I can get serious about it. Oddly, I think getting good and drunk with the boys last night seems to have reset my brain and reengaged my focus.
