Chaos at the Casa

Some of you probably know that I am just back from a vacation in Austin, Texas. It was super to get away, to see dear friends and visit the desert. I kept about six hundred of the pictures I shot–we saw everything from scaled quail to a fox!–and these are percolating out to my various photo sites.

Coming up in the next very short while: I will be at the Ad Astra SF Convention this weekend. This’ll be your first chance, if you’re local, to hear me read from Child of a Hidden Sea. We are wrapping up the paperwork portion of our condo purchase next week, and plunging into a few necessary renovations before we move. My next UCLA Extension Writers’ Program course, Writing the Fantastic, opens on April 14th. (There may not be slots available right now, but if it has filled there is a waiting list.)

Then we move to the new place! In, seriously, three weeks!

Much is happening, in other words. How about all of you?

  1. Sounds like a lovely holiday — certainly looks like one too! We’re off to Nantucket for our 26th honeymoon, in the same place we had the first.

  2. Oh, sounds lovely! Nice to revisit a beloved place, and one that figures in your fiction, too!

  3. We’re going to rent a 2-person bicycle and pedal around, picnic, walk on the beach & stuff. Walking on the beach there we once saw a seal swimming by through a wave at our eye-level. It gave us a look, then went about its seal-ish business.

    Hope your new condo works out well. Wish we could be there to lend a hand with the move; it’s always a bit stressful.
