number 42, sent from Spain the first week of June, arrived just a few weeks ago. I took a month off as Andy and I traversed Europe. Back in New Orleans, I printed Keep Writing number 43 at Fitzgerald Letterpress in New Orleans. I bought 130 postcards while in Europe, mostly in Italy, and printed on the backs. I thought it would give me time to catch up to moving. this, which you might remember seeing locked up. I never had a chance to proof it as a hurricane hit and we left the city a few days later, still without electricity. Again, John helped out by printing the text I had left onto the chipboard Kathryn had donated to the cause. He kindly sent multiple messages to me, which I did not receive because of phone and internet issues in Oakland and eventually had to guess the placement of my text according to my awful notes. The finished postcards are in the mail. Now back to work on setting next month's, using the facilities at the San Francisco Center for the book.

A note: I started this most nearly a month a ago, wrote half of it and put it down for the night. Then we heard there was a hurricane heading our way. The storm was not so bad but we lost power which meant no internet. And we were supposed to be renting a truck and moving to California. We still had no electricity as we packed the truck, drove three days across the Western US, arrived, moved into new house and now, just yesterday, did we get internet service back. Also, you may have noticed I have been moving around a lot. Finally though, I feel unjumbled enough to write a little about these photos.
