This morning I, along with the rest of my beloved Out in Harmony choir peeps, can be found bright and early at the Vancouver incarnation of the Walk for Life. This is a fundraiser, whose proceeds go to direct programs and services for Canadians living with HIV/AIDS in their communities. It is also an annual outreach for us, but due to route changes on the walk, we will be singing as the participants all head out, as opposed to midway through the route.
I want to wish all the walkers good weather and a pleasant time… and to note that if you meant to sponsor someone and didn’t get a chance, you can still do so directly on their site. Or hey, come on down and we’ll sing as you write ’em a cheque!
I converted alyxdellamonica.com to a WordPress site in June of 2010, with the goal of integrating the static site about my writing with the more dynamic content of my blog, which originated on Livejournal, and whose archives still live there. I have great plans for this site, and given my posting habits, I know that all of the areas you see in the menus on this site will soon be brimming over with new, up-to-date, recent, sexy content. I will continue to grab text fragments and post mini-reviews of books as I read them, talk film and TV, discuss the music I’m listening to as well as whatever I’m singing with my choir, and write about food, wine, cheese, and eco-consumerism.
I am also getting ready to launch an interview series, Journeys, which will discuss the career paths of various authors in the SF and fantasy fields.
I could dig up old posts on some of these topics and whip off a few new ones, if I wished, but I want this process to happen organically. I want to write good thoughtful posts, things you will enjoy, things that will make you hungry or thoughtful or maybe even mad once in awhile–things that will get you talking. In the meantime, this post is just a quick note to say I’m sorry there’s nothing more on point here just yet, and to beg your patience while I generate content that’s really worth reading.
