Pre-Umlauted Sanskrit

Before I give my bye-bye message for the coming week away, I have a few things to share with you:

Who is this guy?  I dunno, but the New England Journal of Medicine has his picture in it to demonstrate what sun can do over time.  This guy was a long distance truck driver, always driving with his window down, and you can see what the sun has done to him over his time on the road.  Scary.  So I hope you are scrambling for the SPF and slathering yourself with it.  Join us pale people-  I KNEW you would.  Maybe someday we will even think pale looks better.  Hey, I can hope, can't I?

I'm heading north for a few days to attend a last crit group, catch up with some friends, kiss some babies and chase some toddlers, and see my own kids.  Then we are going to the Cape for a wedding of a friend's son.  So, I am in the studio cutting slats and drilling holes and vacuuming up dead critters.  I've completely finished the 'Who's Who of American Women' quilt with it's sleeve and slat and fused label.  

I am sticking it on the wall and hoping some good luck comes along for it!  I would take it along to show the crit group but one of them is the jury for a show I've entered it into. So I'm taking a picture and showing that to everyone else if I get a chance.  

I was hoping to get more hand work done on the big twins quilt, but not today, not enough time, so it will have to wait until I get back.  It's coming along well, which I almost hate to say out loud, just not fast enough.  Once I get a quilt in the pipeline, I lose interest quickly and it's a trial to get myself at it again.

So, I don't know how much I'll be able to post on the road.  I don't like the iPad enough to type on it extensively, and the laptop I leave there is, ummm,  well,

and even the internet access is, shall we say, compromised, but I never have enough time there to deal with it.  So there you have it.  See you in a few days.

You seem to know exactly what to say and your words have a positive effect on others today. But even if you have a solid plan, you are likely to ignore it once a conversation starts. Stay in the present moment now rather than trying to follow a particular script. Step boldly into unknown territory, but beware that you probably won't end up where you expected*.

*tell me that isn't scary as I am about to get on JetBlue...
