I realize I've been pretty quiet lately, but I had a good reason this last week: I'm flying back to Hawai‘i today, and I wanted to spend as much time as I could with my family before I left.
Also, just yesterday I was able to find my favorite Periodic Table of the Elements T-shirt that had been lost for over a year. Hooray!
Edit: And, in case you were wondering, I made it back to Hilo in one piece. I'd forgotten just how much I like the weather here.
