Off to Maine (and perhaps Prince Edward Island) and perhaps to see a dying friend (that’s what happens when you reach my age — 78 ). I’ve found that the best way to get back in the swing of things on return is just start with the latest journals, skipping what you missed. Trying to double up on your reading when you get back is unpleasant and makes you wish you never went away. If you missed something important, eventually you will hear about it.
So I stopped reading 26 August, and next evening bumped into a friend who wanted to discuss something in that day’s Science magazine.
Leave a comment on this post, if there’s anything you’d like to hear about.
