I had a friend out from California for almost a week, and we had a great time enjoying the beauty of New England in October. We went to Salem a couple of times, did a ghost walk, visited Concord, went to the renaissance faire, saw an author talk, and walked the Freedom Trail. As a result, though, I’ve had almost no time for reading or blogging lately.
This last Friday at work I did a special Halloween talk showing off some of our rare books that feature vampires, witches, exorcism, and spellbooks. Tonight, I’m playing a Halloween concert with my jazz band. It’s a dance with an optional dinner, and I’m hoping people will dress up. Now, I’m just battening down the hatches, waiting to see if they’ll cancel work tomorrow due to the storm, which would let me stay home and read.
