Deadlines, family drama, protracted dental appointments, and holiday preparations make me long, like Virginia Woolf, for forced bed rest. Since I can’t have that, I’m opting for blog rest.

Posting will be slow to nonexistent for the duration of the holiday season, with the possibility of occasional flurries. In my absence, please visit a bunch of the other fine literary destinations on tap around here.

Happy, happy to you and yours.
