Don't you hate looking at photographs when you're not in them?

Me too!

Oh, and I made this for my gals.

Farewell my Wintertime Prison... Springtime is the amnesty hors d'oeuvre and reminds all (in these Northern climates) of the duality of nature.

See the flattened squirrel on the bike path? (Why is it SO flat on a bike path? WHY??)

And see the lilacs in full bloom? (DO YOU??!! Face-meltingly beautiful...)

Hmm, people also think about baseball in the Spring? Right? How about a congratulations card for the bros?

Jen's back!

Thank God.

She said she "missed ZP soooo much!"

ZP missed her too! To show her just how much, this rabbit (mascot) sacrificed and froze himself to the ground right in front of the gate she walks through to enter the ZP Headquarters.

ALSO, I wrote/designed a new cover for my book... Kara is busily drawing pictures while I bark directions at her. I'm sure she's already made a voodoo doll of me.

I don't blame her a bit.

Jen is in Istanbul (was Constantinople, now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople)

and I discuss cannibalism after a family dinner. "Apparently," says Number One Son, "human meat tastes just like bison."

And so on.

If this Winter ever ends (will it?? Did I just imagine warmer days??), students will graduate and I made a card for such an occasion:

It's true!

Our site was down for most of the week and the pirates wouldn't restore it until serious demands were met. Jen had to "marry" the pirates and I had to write more birthday cards for our Spring Release.

I've had 120 fires, watched everything (worth watching) on Netflix, eaten BONE-BROTH soup (like a caveman), changed my Smartwool socks 4 times...

Oh, and WROTE A BOOK.

Here's the new cover with working title. (Isn't that what people say??)

But I always try to find the deeper meaning behind hardship, and 45 sub-zero days equals hardship. AM I RIGHT??

Maybe I'm supposed to let the Winter inspire more cards?

That's right! Scientists have analyzed data and determined that it's extra cold.

Now I feel even less bad for never leaving my beanbag nest with fireplace view.

I gave up working-out and have adopted a restorative yoga practice. This particular pose is called Corpse.

Note the Winter coat. My character froze to death on the prairie.

ANYWAY. I can act like this now because I'm an eccentric writer with A LITERARY AGENT.
