Being realistic about this, I'll have to beg off this time.

I'm offshore right now, and will probably be here until October 4th. Then there are two concerts on the 27th I'll have to work hard to prepare for - unless I go offshore again before then, in which case I'll probably only have about 10 days at home between now and October 31st.

10 days is not enough to get the inspiration going, selecting a negative, and getting three good lith prints from it. I usually have to try at least four or five until I find one that turns out right, and there's a limit to how much of my rare time off my wife will let me spend in the darkroom...

Maybe next time things will be "normal" at work?
