In the morning I leave for the Frozen North, wonderful place that it is. Pray for me, my young and old and new friends!

Wish me luck in finishing The View from Nebo: How Archaeology is Rewriting the Bible and Reshaping the Middle East, and in reading The Underground Man, Archaeology of the Circle, The Tree of Swords and Jewels, Death on the Ice, and Ah, but Your Land is Beautiful, as that is my goal for the break.

There are presents under the tree, and we're leaving it. There is a cat named Fluffy in the garage, and we're leaving it. And most importantly, there is goat cheese in the fridge and we're leaving it. Sometimes, life just isn't fair.
