The lights will largely be off around here for the next couple weeks. My wife and I are embarking on our long anticipated trip to the Baltic. (The sea, not the town north of Sioux Falls.)
I am going sans laptop not because of seizure concerns but because there will be much more interesting diversions. For example, our arrival in Tallinn, Estonia, on July 4 is in the midst of the annual Õllesummer (Beer Summer), one of the largest festivals in the Baltics. We will also spend three days in St. Petersburg so, given the amount of airplane and airport time that’s ahead (likely including experiences like my dear friend Opus), the trip’s primary reading selection is War and Peace.
While abroad, the senses refuse to be burdened by the mundane.
