Rather less going on then usual. colgaffneyis has no shows in September, so there is not the rush to get ready for the next event. Gaeltacht Minnesota is in the middle of a three week break. All this is just as well. The continual threatening atmosphere at work is wearing me down. Furthermore, allergies have been interfering with my sleep. They are hitting me much harder than in the past several summers. There are several projects I want to work on at home, but it is hard to find the energy to proceed with them.
