Checking in, checking out

I'm still here, but just barely. After an exhausting but exhilirating trip to Washington, D.C. to be part of the team that pulled off a very successful march on the White House on behalf of the Cuban Five, I returned, only to find myself A) still filled with tasks from that event, including getting pictures and video (both my own and that of others) up on the website and making DVDs of the same material for showing at reportback meetings all over the country; B) trying to catch up with normal tasks at work; C) consumed nearly full-time by a project at work which has me working more intensely than in quite a while (yes, I know it's hard to believe, but I do work for a living); and D) catching up with things at home as well. Just as I'm nearing normalcy after a week, now some old friends are about to arrive from out of town for a week, ready to be shown the entire Bay Area from Monterey to Yosemite.

So, much as I miss writing this blog, it looks like my period of "downtime" is going to continue for another week or two. I hope readers will check in periodically to see what I'm up to, but don't be surprised when there's little new. I will return to the fray, have no fear. There are windmills to be tilted at and I'm just the guy to do the tilting. Just not with the usual intensity quite yet.
