Busy, busy

Sorry I haven't been entering fascinating little tidbits lately, but I've been working on the infrastructure of the St. Vincent book. There are lots of pictures that have to be coordinated with the text pages and there were enough of them that I had to use three interlocked web sites to hold them all. I've got enough structure on the web at that I just have to do editing of what I had on there. Then I can start adding things I've picked up in the last year or so. Adding bits is something you can do in fits and starts--creating structure is something that takes concentrated attention.
