I'm sitting in the San Francisco airport, waiting for my flight to Seattle. Two quick things:
1. My driver, Bob, was the coolest. He's 68 and gave me nuggets of wisdom the whole way. For example: the most dangerous time in our lives is not when we're hungry, poor, angry, or sad. It's the "meantime", when we are idle or bored. That's when bad things happen. Also, women have two powerful weapons over men. The first is, um, sex. The second is much more powerful: silence.
When I told him about my tour and such, he quoted Proverbs 18:16: A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men (and women of course!). Bob, you're awesome.
2. As soon as I logged into the Internet here in the airport, I had a gem of an email waiting for me.
Krista sent me the cover for MAZE!!!!!!
However, I can't show it yet because it's not officially finalized. But I'll be showing it soon, probably by the end of the week. But I will say this: I LOVE it. Truly love it. I can't conceive of someone seeing it and NOT picking it up out of curiosity. I'm a happy dude.
Remember to tune in to this SAME blog post later today, where I will update it further. If you missed last night's very late update of my dinner, go read the previous post.
