Meeting Ed

I've been traveling the past ten days--first to a meeting in St. Louis and then up to Iowa City for the Iowa Summer Writing Festival.  Along the way, in Southeast Iowa, I had lunch with Ed.  We have been reading each other blog since 2005! This was our first time to meet face-to-face. It was a pleasure to catch up with him.

Ed doesn't use his real name in his blog (his name is taken from Edward Abbey, an author we both enjoy). Nor does he show facial photos, so I figured a handshake would suffice. 

Remember, most of my blogging these days can be found here.
