Some of you asked about the color of this piece called "Icarus Unbound." It is in black and white. I considered using color and even trying to somehow back light it through glass (as if the sun were shining behind it) then I decided I liked the irony of the contrast and simplicity of black and white in comparison to the blaze of inspiration.
While trying to figure out how to tweet for Quilly’s contest to win a copy of the Chosen Ones, I found a site that will Shorten Your Links. It takes the 40 or so characters from a blog post address and shrinks them to less than ten characters.
I receive a copy of The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor each day in my email. It features a poem a day and bits of history.
I went to the Wizard World Comic Con 2010 in Philadelphia on Saturday with my daughter, my son-in-law, his brother and his girl friend , their brother-in-law and my grandson (did you get all of that?) I took many photos. I’ll be posting some over the next couple of weeks. I always wanted to see a Comic Convention and I am glad I did but I don’t need to go again. The autograph and photograph racket for the “stars” is amazing.

I saw the BP coffee spill YouTube video at Short Attention Span Theatre. Very funny.
Still doing three handwritten journal pages each morning. Up to page 50 in the Happenstance edit. And writing 500 words (before doing any blogging) each day.
