Comings and goings. I'm still recovering from a local move and a trip to San Francisco. Went down to SF to visit The Next Generation. Had a great visit, and TNG recorded his first movie on my digital camera! George Lucas, watch out. Also I've moved ... back into my old building, after spending about 14 months in a much-too-large apartment. (At the time I moved there originally, it made sense because I needed the space to sort through all the books and stuff I'd inherited from my family. But I'm glad to be back in my old, cozy building on Morrison Street.) Small (and cozy) is a good thing in Portland right now, because we're having a serious cold snap.

Posting break. I'll need to spend some time over the next couple of weeks taking care of household stuff (i.e. unpacking) and looking for a new 8-to-5 gig. Also I am getting active in the creative department again, with a new story in the works, plus I want to get caught up on several other blogging-related projects I've got going on. So I'm going to take a hiatus from new posts on Dreams Into Lightning through the end of the calendar year - but that doesn't mean I won't be busy.

Lightning strikes twice. For your continued entertainment, I will be posting re-runs of some of my important earlier posts that you might have missed, along with whatever updates or addenda may be necessary.

Latest events in the Dreams Into Lightning universe. New fiction (in progress) can be found here. And keep an eye on Pacific Memories as our narrator describes life on Fiji circa 1943. (Plot spoiler: Digging pits for 155-mm howitzers isn't fun.)
