Off for a while
« on: December 07, 2003, 06:30:53 pm »

I'm going to be off the boards for a while -- taking a break while I get some work done. If you need me for anything urgent and don't have my address, just let Debra know. That woman can always track me down, somehow.

Thanks especially to all the folks who helped so charmingly with ideas for the new book, and thanks even more especially to the valiant defenders of the rights of artists, writers, and inventors to own the products of their mind.

(Boy, my life would be a lot easier & a lot less busy if books really were just nothing but pulp and ink, with no valuable contribution from my brain, as some imagine to be the case. Or maybe there is no value to my brain. There are definitely those days when it seems that way ...)
 
Be seein' ya.  :)

That figures. As soon as I join this board, Claire takes a sabbatical!

Claire, days like those will come... and go.  There are reasons why we pull into ourselves. To heal, to rest, to nurture, to re-create. Sometimes we don't know why, but if we quiet our minds our hearts do the work that needs doing.
I read your blog entry.  I'm sorry...
We'll miss you while you do the work you need to do.

Oh well.  If the price of another great work by Claire is doing without her company for a while, we'll just have to suffer through.

Good luck Claire.  We'll be here if you need us.

Claire gone? Oh my!

Just like the rest of us I guess that Clair needs to recharge her batteries every now and again. I look forward to Claire's return.  I expect that the fur will really be flying then.  :D
