It was great to get out on the lake at least once this season. I don’t begrudge my absence from the weekend schools, the mid-week sessions, and the sold-out Ice Dice events. But I do notice it. Of course the fact that V and I have taken on the worlds biggest and best project (creating a universe incarnate) has influenced […]
