The responses to last week’s Notes were numerous and varied. I’ll be writing about them soon. But for now, I’m still on the road from Minneapolis to Texas. What a long, strange trip it’s been. Plus, I’ll be gone to Oaxaca, Mexico for the entire month of December, once again studying Spanish.
Do you know that all one hundred and sixteen Notes are on my Tenacity Notes Blog site? One of the great things about the blog is that it has a search function. Say you remember one particular Note, about something some guy said, and all you remember is that the guy was in an orchestra. (Do you remember that one?) Just type orchestra in the search box, and sure enough, there it is, Tenacity Notes #3, from July 28, 2009:
