NisN posts have been few and far between. I have been busy at work (& offline) crafting new projects for a book. We’re finishing up this week and I’ll be back in the computer saddle. I’ve also been enjoying the glories of spring spending time outdoors hiking & biking. BS & I started a new blog Day Tripper to document our weekend explorations outside NYC.
