I'm by myself in the house on the beach today - everyone else was driving a couple of hours to the Inland Empire to my cousin-in-law's family. I'm a little too blue for two days of constant company, so solitude and sunshine seem preferable.
Lots to share about life doing sound-effects, and all sorts of cool stuff. Maybe later, as the sun is lowering itself into the wide western ocean, I'll haul the laptop out onto the balcony and get some writing done.
Merry Christmas to all my friends and family, no matter how far away they may be!
