Overdue update!

All pretty quiet on the home front here, as we slip into the last few weeks of Torah writing. I've spent today at one end of a huge table, correcting Torah sheets I wrote a while ago.

At the other end of the table was Sofer Boyfriend, correcting a Scroll of Kohelet he wrote a while ago.

Sunshine, lovely spring breezes, birdsong, and the scratchings of scalpels and occasional "What do you think about this?"-type conversation snatches all add up to a very congenial atmosphere from which to produce Torah.

Logistically speaking, writing has been suspended while the present sheets are being proofread. This is called planning ahead - the computer-checking people are Very Very Busy right before Shavuot, so the sensible thing to do is get practically all of your sefer to the checkers well in advance. By Monday, the checkers will have 88% of the sefer, and we'll be able to do the last bits in a decently leisurely sort of fashion.
