I've been busy (I'm so, so far behind on email...if you sent me an email in the past 2-3 weeks and I haven't replied, I apologize; I'll try to get to it soon). I've been working on a small design project, a small typography project, and a slightly larger programming project, pretty much all at the same time. I've been in the zone lately. First time in a long while...and it feels pretty good. Alan Lightman, looking back on his career as a theoretical physicist in an essay for the New York Times, summed up the feeling pretty well:

"I miss being grabbed by a science problem so that I could think of nothing else, consumed by it during the day and then through the night, hunched over the kitchen table with my pencil and pad of white paper while the dark world slept, tireless, electrified, working on until daylight and beyond."
