The lovely and effulgent blondebitz created cover art for one of my stories. See and marvel!

I’m flabbergasted and reeling and impressed and REALLY GRATEFUL and happy, happy, happy. Best early Christmas present ever. Praise Blondie!

20th-Dec-2014 07:45 pm - Doing a bit of catch-up
Most of what has been going on in my life lately has been about people around me, rather than about me directly, and I wasn’t sure how much it was okay to talk about those things. I’ve been given approval to address them, though, so:

Main item — sroni (my daughter) miscarried. It was still early enough that it required medical analysis to confirm that this was what had happened, but they did so confirm. My wife and I went through that once (I understand that it’s fairly common, more so since pregnancy tests now offer earlier and earlier diagnoses), and I remember how much it hurt, and how it was a pain we couldn’t really get hold of, so I have some sense of how sroni felt and still feels. But, of course, not as strong a sense as if I were myself female.

At almost the same time, we now have news that my son’s wife Mei-li is pregnant. For a brief period it appeared that we’d have two grandchildren arriving within a few months of each other; now only the one is still hopeful.

I can’t believe how close Christmas has come before I really noticed how far along we were in the month. I mean, we’re less than two weeks from the New Year now, and it just purely snuck up on me.

Things aren’t bad now (far from it), but I still hope they get better.

Posting for Phase 3 of this year’s Circle of Friends Remix (cof_remix) was today. Newcomer velvetwhip was the only participant who managed to meet the Phase 3 deadline, though sroni and I are still working on stories we may add later. See velvetwhip’s submission, “Defining Moments”, and offer the feedback it deserves.

28th-Nov-2014 11:20 am - Family tradition
Thanksgiving at Susan’s niece’s home; sroni was with us, and formally announced her pregnancy, at which point the niece observed that this would be the continuation of an apparent tradition.

Susan was 14 when the niece was born. The niece was fourteen when sroni was born. sroni was 14 when the niece’s first daughter was born. And now the daughter will be 14 when sroni’s child (a girl, if the tradition holds) is born.

How much further can it go? We’ll just have to see.
