Today is day thirty of my deployment in Kuwait. I’m sorry I haven’t been writing to you all very much. I’ve been kind of busy over here doing, you know, some stuff for these people doing this thing for somebody else. It’s complicated.
Anyway, it’s my last deployment before I retire from the Army. I console myself with that thought every day.
Every. Day. (Everyday.)
Once this gritty sojourn is finished, it’ll be time to start chucking dead weight overboard from my cluttered life and focus on writing. Every day.
Meanwhile, I hope you’ll bear with me.
