Down by the seaside
Actually, I'm not going fishing, but that's the traditional indicator that someone has gone on vacation. I've never been fishing. My grandfather used to fish, but he died when I was little, and I never went out with him.
I will try to keep a journal while I'm at the shore. This will help me make sense of my vacation after the fact, when it tends to be a blur. Maybe I'll transcribe those notes when I get back.
If you happen to be in Stone Harbor, NJ, try to find me! I'll be the big guy on the beach reading a biography of Benjamin Franklin, or the 9/11 Commission Report, or writing notes in a spiral-bound sketchbook.
I should be back online sometime after August 21. Until then, take care!
