The Lazy Summer Blogging Break Begins

Today's officially the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, the solstice and midsummer and all that. So perhaps it's an auspicious day to begin some summertime wanderings. Later today I'll be leaving for a week to play chaperon/official mule at our church's local Girls Camp; as the father of four daughters, I long ago decided that this would be my fate every June, and to tell the truth, I don't mind it at all. Then the Monday after I return we'll be off as a family to Washington state, for a family reunion. This year, we're actually flying--something we haven't done with all the girls since about 2005. Should be an adventure. (I know they're looking forward to the flight...Melissa and I, not so much.) Point is, that'll keep me away from the computer for another two weeks, or nearly so. So, put it all together, I'll be on a blogging break until the second week of July, at least. And who knows? I've got a couple of big writing projects I need to finish this summer (one I knew about; the other has come up unexpectedly), so maybe once I'm back, I'll find that I'm enjoying the blogging break enough to keep it up even longer. Either way, though, I will return eventually, of that you can be certain.

In the meantime? I suppose if something crazy or brilliant happens I may log on and write up a post, but I wouldn't count on it. You can count on Friday Morning Videos to continue throughout the break, however. I've done my homework, and have some nice, lazy, easy-going, summer-appropriate snippets line up. Aren't you glad to know how much I care? Anyway, keep on having a good summer, everybody. See you when I return.

Perhaps when you return you'll have something to say about Andrew Rehfield's, erm, "thoughts" on "Offensive Political Theory" in the latest issue of Perspectives on Politics.
