“If you want God to laugh like crazy, just tell him you have plans.”

A week ago I was absolutely sure in today’s post I’d be happily gloating about how much writing I’d gotten done the past six days. But after just three mornings at the keyboard, making excellent progress, life intervened.

Today I’m struggling to complete this post on an iPad, sitting at my best friend’s bedside at the VA Hospital in Portland. My writing will have to wait. I am where I need to be, stuck in the abyss of “hurry up and wait land,” without proper technology to create.

Send positive thoughts for my friend’s speedy recovery!
