Regular readers of Via Negativa will remember Denny Coates, frequent commenter and erstwhile proprietor of Book of Life. Switched at Birth carries an update from Denny and Kathleen as they struggle to clean up from two hurricanes (Jeanne and Frances).
Meanwhile, at the other end of the state, the Longleaf Preserve – main focus of Switched at Birth – was pretty much trashed by Ivan. Beth has decided to follow Denny’s lead and take a sabbatical from blogging. I wish her and Buck the best, and hope she returns to blogging soon. I’ll miss her distinctive, lyrical voice, the loving snapshots of a (to me) highly exotic landscape, and the inimitable paeans to gourmet cuisine.
