The Key West Literary Seminar was amazing. Key West was beautiful and tropical and made me want to move there. I got home very late last night, but I'm definitely not all here yet.

I'm really not ready to go back to work tomorrow. I'm also really far behind, so drop me a note if there's something I should know.
