Today is my last day in "the bunker"—my lovely basement office in our Ontario home. I have another lovely office awaiting in Mexico, but this one is my favourite, and I always feel a little sad leaving.

On the 1st of November, a little jet-lagged and travel weary, I will unpack my lovely office in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
As soon as I have my printer up and running, I will print out THE GAME OF HOPE (working title of The Next Novel). I've been thinking about it a lot and am ready to plunge into the next draft.
Other things going on:

Maybe when I'm 80 ...
