RIP David Halberstam

Just a sad and sudden death. I was fortuante enough to hear him speak last year about this time at the National Writer's Workshop.

Zippy and I were talking yesterday about stuff - we're thinking of relocating (perhaps upstate NY) where life is a little quieter and gentler (I can work anywhere). We're gonna start sniffing around but do not envision a move in the short term (maybe 12 months). Zippy was fretting - jobs, friends, family. But hir mom and dad are in their 90's, and neither of us is a spring chicken either. Stuff happens. The world could be a very different place 12 months hence.

Mr. Halberstam's sudden and untimely death is just a reminder.....
