Was it all a dream? My seven-week sabbatical has come to a close.
IOU blog posts and photo uploads recounting travels, emails and thank you’s for writing, and knitting and design updates.
It’s been nice to withdraw from my computer and professional life. I’m reminded of how many truly wonderful people I have in my life. I hope to cherish the perspective gained during my time off for many years to come. Or at least the next six until my next sabbatical.

Here’s the view of San Francisco Ted and I enjoyed driving to Point Bonita YMCA.
Californians voted to amend the state constitution to take away civil rights.
We were married on 10/31/08. Proponents of Prop 8 are seeking annulments for all 17,000+ same-sex marriages that have happened since the state supreme court declared denying these basic civil rights unconstitutional.
There are 3-4 million provisional ballots that still need to be counted. Last I heard, the gap between Yes and No is only 500,000. We’ll know more on 11/13.
As of today, cities in California will stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
