I’ve been away for a bit. First I wanted to stay silent out of respect for everything that happened at Boston. Then I wanted to write about Boston and ended up doing so, but I sent that piece to an alternative newspaper instead of posting on this blog. It’s easier to reveal one’s more private thoughts when writing to a larger audience. Why is that, I wonder? Maybe because it’s less insular, less intimate, and therefore the writing feels less of a risk. Whatever the case, I’ll post the link when it prints later this week.
I’ve also been writing like mad and have pretty much run out of words. So I’m posting pics instead. Please notice how much snow we still have up here in Alaska, sigh, sigh.

And last but not least, our sunny hike up Powerline Pass with The Beebs.

And after all of that happiness, a package came in the mail today containing this:
Advance review copies from my publisher. So much fun! Titles include The End of Night by Paul Bogard; Thinking in Numbers by Daniel Tammet; Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson; Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand; Shorecliff by Ursula DeYoung; and The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe by Mary Simses.
Cannot wait to curl up and begin reading later tonight.
