While I was away, I was able to do some nice research and poking through my grandmother's letters from Cuba. The juxtaposition of reading about the steamy tropics and listening to Afro-Cuban jazz on the iPod while floating past icebergs was kinda weird at first, but it was actually a nice backdrop to my work.

I've even started a blog specifically for my Cuba project: Habana Daydreamin'. Hopefully, this will give me an outlet for musing and writing and the accountability to keep up with the project. Comments (constructive, please -- my fledgling writer's ego is a bit nervous at this prospect) questions and encouragement are welcomed...
