Rain, Books, Hiking, Michigan

I slept 9 hours last night, 10 hours the night before, At home, I sleep 6, maybe 7.  It’s been raining here for 3-4 days, so we run out and do a walk or a hike in between downpours, sit on the porch and read books.  I have been writing the product specs for oakland local and for some maps we want to build.

Being in a new place ans have more unscheduled time feels like a gift. Stepping away from twitter and the web except for very sporadic bits of a day is totally a gift. My sprained thumb (!) is starting to feel a bit better.

I’m also starting to look ahead to later this summer, when  Oakland Local will kick in as  a major focus, along with some other smaller projects. We’ll be doing some Public Media Collaborative training as well, and planning our own one day event of social media for social action.

But right now is that space between the worlds, the re charge and vacation space, and it is wonderful.
