Back from a LOT of running...

It's August now and the high heat of Summer is in full bloom. It's a little easer for me to huddle indoors these afternoons to play around with other writing tasks and expand on my Greenshore universe. That's the thing about this project: its still FUN to write. Speaking of which, I've begun to compile the various notebooks and electronic media into a single (offline) source.

Now that Greenshore has become a fleshed-out entity to me, I don't want to spend a lot of time fol…
