Here’s your deep thought for the day: Starting up a new business is a lot of work. In fact, that deep thought will serve for the past four days, which is how long I’ve gone without updating this site, and for an indeterminate number of days in the future, as the demands on my time intensify.
The holiday break was pretty much a round of nonstop painting and cross-state drives to pick up furniture and bookcases. Painting and the ensuing dribbles and drips have transformed some of my clothing into Jackson Pollack canvasses, and I had to suspend using polyurethane when the fumes caused me to see Jesus, Mohammad, Zoroaster, and Buddha playing five-card stud in the front room.
Suffice to say that Nighthawk Books is on its way to opening later this month, and I’ll have more to say about it pretty soon.
