Beyond outfield, looking toward home

I woke up at an unthinkable early hour this morning, without an alarm, the sheer power of adrenaline enough to rouse me. This morning I’m on the road to Ohio to visit my family, attend my niece’s graduation party, and otherwise reconnect with my Inner Midwesterner. Although I’m taking my laptop and a bagful of books so I can keep in touch with my online classes, and although I hope public library wifi will save me the agony of glacially slow dial-up Internet access, I don’t know how much–if at all–I’ll be blogging while I’m gone. In the meantime, keep swinging for the fences!
