Still at it.
Yep: at Starbucks, getting some writing in before hitting the gym.
I cannot, alas, skip the gym. The six months of overtime from hell has left me weak and knotted up. Luckily, gym-time is reading-time, so there’s a built-in reward!
Hey, I got a car! I’ll post a picture of it shortly. 2002 Subaru Impreza GT. Power everything, plus sunroof. I’m still recovering from the monetary shock. I have to rethink my plans for the rest of the year.
Other news: usually my friends Ann Tonsor Zeddies and Geary Gravel and I get together for a few days after some convention, but this year we all skipped Boskone, so we just went ahead and met con-less.
We normally spend an evening doing collages… then last year we tried masks…
This year, while wandering through the craft store looking for supplies, I spotted some boxes made to look like books and had a brain storm.
Ann’s book-box seems to be called “Every Hour Should Be Happy”
Geary’s box seems to be called The Alchemists.
I really like how these turned out. In fact, I like mine so much that I really wish I’d executed it more carefully and precisely, and made it a more worthy object to preserve. But we tend to throw our collages together in fits of inspiration, outracing any hesitancy or self-censoring, and and perfection is not the point.
Still, I might make this a Thing I Do.
