The short version is: I moved to Minneapolis, worked at DreamHaven, made a bunch of new friends, attended more MidWest conventions than I've been able to get to for years, then, come the beginning of 2017, moved back to Vashon Island. Greg, Lisa and I remain the best of buddies, and I wish all wonderful things for DreamHaven, but as Mike did not find work in Minneapolis, and his Seattle job did not, in fact, end when we thought it might, it became more clear that we weren't going to make the move.
So now I'm back in the land of twilight and, as of May, working at the Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie, where I'm having a much more engaging time than I was expecting.
So maybe I'll post more here. Or maybe another long time will pass. We shall see.
