Well, I'm back, maybe to stay? I don't particularly like to blog much while I'm not doing something exciting like, uh, living in another country or riding my bicycle every day across this country. But I've got some stuff I'd like to finish up, and I occasionally have some new stuff I do want to throw out there. So for the time being I'm removing updates from my Facebook page so that people interested in my travels but not much else won't get inundated.

My first report will be about my trip: I have yet to write about the retreat I attended, so I'd like to finish that up. I've also been working on some fiction, continuing a series of letters about weird folks that I started a couple of years ago. Finally, I might write about running training. I'm hoping to do an ultra marathon by the end of the year, we'll see how that goes.

Maybe one day I'll go on another trip or find some other subject worthy of a consistent blog. Until then, check here every once in a while if you feel like it!
