Today I go to the dentist, have a morning meeting with my buddy Phil to talk about ministry at his church, and then will be interviewed by Bob Gregoire at 1:30 PM Eastern time/10:30 AM Pacific time (hope you can tune in!). In the afternoon I hope to work on either the revision for The Aspiring Mystic (which we hope to have published sometime in 2011) or else a proposal for a new book (which, God willing, will be published in 2012 or 2013).
And then after that… nothing.
For the first time in months, I have absolutely nothing planned this weekend. Well, that’s not quite true, as we will go see the new Harry Potter movie tomorrow and of course will go to mass on Sunday. But I have no “work” related commitments this weekend. No class to prepare for; no writing that needs to be done; no editing that’s under a deadline. Not only will I honor the Sabbath (something that, I must confess, I haven’t been very faithful to, since the book came out in July), but I’ll have Saturday for down-time as well. I’m going to hang out with Fran and Rhiannon, and try to do as little as possible.
To assist in this, I’m not going to post in this blog, unless something so stupendously awesome and time-sensitive comes up that I absolutely must write about it. Otherwise, I’m going to let it go (I’ll set up a couple of quotations to post on Saturday and Sunday, just to keep the RSS feed humming. But I won’t be back on seat until the first of the week).
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
