Hope everyone had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
One of our family friends, 24 years old, is in Iraq for a year. We were glad to know that, if he had to have an injury, it was from falling off his top bunk. We sent him a big Ace bandage, with the words "Bottom Bunk or Bust" written in ink.
The last 3 days have felt like a Coen Brothers movie. Do you ever have those rare moments when things just open up and suddenly, everything makes sense? All the events seemed to interrelate, which the Coen's do so well within their scripts.
People I met 16 years ago are approaching me, asking about doing some artistic projects together in the next few years. Disappointments which occurred 8 months ago now make sense, and I met new people this weekend who needed to hear that the hellish interlude does eventually end.
Somehow it all is beginning to come together...which is cool (and yet frightening) in a way.
Project updates. I am returning to the book today. I've set it aside for a week and am itching to return to it. This next round of edits will take longer, and I plan to do one more final polish before sending it out.
Have a great week, everyone!
