Weekend Apart

I'm off to Malibu this weekend for a spiritual retreat. I'm not sure what to expect besides getting out of the city, enjoying the peace and quiet of the outdoors, spending time with friends, and meeting new people. Kari, Amanda, Kathy (Kari's mom) and I are going. Now, I consider myself agnostic so this should be an interesting experience. This is where we're going. The fact that there's a dog on the grounds is definitely a good sign. :) And, rooms inside. No tents or sleeping bags. That's definitely a good thing. :)

Matt is filming this weekend, which means he'll be pooped when I get home from relaxing all weekend. Tonight we went to dinner at a local Thai restaurant with his writing group. Luckily spouses and significant others were invited too, so we all got to chat and have fun and talk about stuff other than writing and movies. Mary and I really hit it off. We're hopefully going to go hiking in Pasadena or Malibu at the end of the month.

Did I happen to mention that Stephanie is coming to visit a week from tomorrow? Did I happen to mention that I'm soooooooooo excited!? :)

So when are the rest of you coming to visit?

See? I your blog. It looks like I'm going to be in CA for at least two days every month for the next two to four months. I'll be in San Francisco - not exactly your doorstep - but I hear that I can take trains or airplanes to your godforsaken city. Then I can bother you and Matt in person. For some reason, I almost wrote "in prison." Say hi to Matt for me, forcefully and with stern conviction. I'll write to your actual real life email adresss once I have more info about when I'll be subjected to the hateful sun-bathed rays of California.

A crumbum,
