It would seem that Imbi and I are De-iceless in Seattle. Apparently Sea-Tac does not have much in the way of de-icing equipment. Problem is, de ice has come in, in a big way. They had us board the flight on time, only to tell us that we’d be sitting @ the gate for between 90 minutes and two hours. Fortunately, I’m able to get wi-fi from the Terminal N building – so I’m working away.
Have much to blog about coming out of our weekend here in the Seattle area. Won’t have a chance to do it until later in the week. I’ve missed blogging. Hopefully I’ve been missed a little as well.
A couple of quick highlights: meeting John La Grou in real life. Meeting one of the finest writers in blogdom (and perhaps anywhere for that matter), Erika Haub, live and in colour for the very first time. (I’d met her wonderful and very funny husband, Doug, a couple of years back @ Fuller.) Erika and Doug’s kids are as gorgeous in the flesh as they are in Erika’s writing. And our weekend here began with a night at Brad and Roxi Bergfalk’s – catching up after not seeing them for a couple of years. (Brad needs to get back into blogging again.)
There are two men who have had a profound impact on how I think in the last ten years. One is Roy Williams. The other, Dick Staub. We got to spend the weekend with Dick & a number of other people. More on that later.
UPDATE: Made it home four hours late.
