... that I'll be gone for eight days starting today, Friday, January 7th. It's actually Ellie's birthday, and we have been planning this trip for some time. We are joining a National Geographic cruise in Costa Rica and Panama, and hope to learn about the flora and fauna of the rain forests there, amongst other things. I have no idea what kind of Internet access I might have, or what choices I will make about "The Buddha Diaries." In the past, as many readers know, I have kept up, pretty much day to day, with text and pictures. But this is quite a demanding and time-consuming task, and I'm not yet sure I'll be up for it, even if the access is available. I may choose to keep notes along the way, and write it all in a sequential blog entry when I get home. In any event, I'll be back at my desk on Monday, January 16, so if I disappear for a while, I hope you'll rejoin me then.
