Once again I have let my journaling get away from me... so much of little import and great consequence has happened since last I wrote. These include:

• visiting old friends in Easton, Pennsylvania, where I lived, 25 years ago – and also Wernersville, where I was a Jesuit novice, and Lititz, which still has the best chocolate in North America;

• visiting a couple, both professors, who invited me to speak at their respective universities and who are such good folk that I can only see them now as great friends in their own right, and no longer just as the children of people my age;

• getting myself elected the president of the Vatican Observatory Foundation, i.e. chief fundraiser, thus insuring that I will be moving back to Tucson after Loncon (attention to all my friends who are millionaires, I will be coming after your second million soon);

• realizing that last Thursday was the birthday of a woman I dated years ago, when she was an undergraduate and I was a post-doc (much too young for me), and calculating that that teenage kid is now 50 years old;

• submitting the second version of our book to my editor, and then having a beta reader return his copy with about 100 typos. I am hoping the editor discovered the quickly-resubmitted version.
