Author's selfie Back in the office again today. The Library Board of Trustees meeting is tonight, so I’m working later than normal. This meeting marks the end of the year and the approval of the 2017 budget.

I finished listening to Bill Nye’s Unstoppable today on the way to work. It’s a good book. Positive, engineering-focused, it covers the challenges and some possible approaches. Largely, it is a call to action. I don’t agree with everything proposed, but in the broad strokes, I think there is a lot of promise in developing renewable energy sources. I’d like to see solar and wind power improve and expand, along with a distributed smart grid. For one thing, a robust distributed grid makes us less vulnerable to disasters of any sort. Less dependence on oil is a good thing in my book.

Writing and Art Progress

No progress to report today. I didn’t get to it before work, and then with a long day at work, I didn’t have a chance this evening. That happens sometimes. Nothing to worry about. I’ll pick it up again tomorrow.
