Here's a little post I meant to publish a whole month ago, but remained as a "Draft." Oops. Read on if you like old news.

I am riding the train back to my flat, with books in French and German on my lap about bookbinding and book arts. I just left bookbinder Esther's studio; I was helping her put bookcloth on the massive portfolio cases she's making for Liz Ingram and Bernd Hildebrandt's book Turbulent Chroma. Before that I was helping Sarah print a Dan Clarke lithograph at Keystone. Now I am going to see my brother who's backpacking Europe and who's staying with me now. We are leaving on Wednesday to spend some days in London.

Life's really good.

Yep. Life's still really good.
