No doubt about it

We're home. We've been home from vacation, in fact, since last Tuesday -- nearly a week -- and yet I feel like I'm still adjusting. Must be the signs of a good time, eh? And, in case we have any doubt that we are no longer in the fantastic warmth of the Southwest, it has snowed to some degree virtually every day since we got home. I haven't had a chance to finish posting my journals from our vacation and I really do want to tell you all about the amazing time we had a 10,000 Waves in Santa Fe. Definitely one of the coolest places we've been and well worth saving up for a while to get yourself there. Unless you don't enjoy peace, serenity and relaxation -- with a little Japanese-style pampering thrown in. In that case, stay away from this place at all costs.

Gearing up to head to St. Louis on Wednesday. Amanda & I are doing a Free Candy at Hartford Coffee Company on Sunday night. Chris is flying in to join me on Friday and he's planning on running the St. Louis Marathon on Sunday afternoon. He'll be the jelly-like one in the front row at Free Candy. If you're in town and around, please join us at 7 pm at Hartford -- get there early if you want a seat!

In the meantime, I'm finishing up some work here and enjoying the fact that our good friend Graham Griffith is in town for a couple of days. He and some of the rest of last year's Fellowship class are doing a special seminar Tuesday to talk to the graduating class of Fellows about adapting to life after the dream year. Our advice? Don't do it. Probably not that helpful.
