Sorry for the radio silence lately. Lot of moving and shaking going on.
I am, of course, still reeling from last month's auction and the generosity shown by all of you. Followed that up with some public speaking at a luncheon being held in honor of Sexual Abuse Awareness Month. *cut to me gripping a podium that thankfully hides the fact that my legs are about to just shake right off.* Thankfully, minoring in theater left me with the tools to smile when what I really want to do is hurl all my cookies. And not vomiting is the scale upon which I base all public speaking success. So, win!
Of course, it helped that the people there showed themselves to be as wonderful as all of you, further reaffirming the whole "world contains a lot of goodness" mindset. And if that weren't enough, it's finally not freezing anymore!
I don't know about where you all are, but the weather has been pretty damn nice around here for the last week or so. Even today's rain was nice, because it finally has that spring rain smell that I love so much. Everything's starting to look all green and beautiful, which should be good for everyone's writerly pursuits as looking at green may make you more creative. And means I finally have an explanation for the inspiration I feel whenever confronted with a picture of a Ninja Turtle.
I mean, sure, spring decided to pretend it was still winter for the first month and a half, but who among us can say that we haven't enjoyed a little play acting from time to time. How can we begrudge spring its fun? Even if it did mean that I started having reoccurring nightmares that this was the harbinger of sentient snowmen rising up from our icy backyards to rule the newly frozen world with us as their frostbitten minions.
Not to be dramatic, or anything.
Anyway, we still have a little over a month of spring to enjoy (provided, of course, the little comedian doesn't decide it wants to do its admittedly impressive summer impersonation). To that end, I'll be doing some spring related posts. Going to kick it off on Monday with the characters that most remind me of this brief, but awesome season.
Until then, have a great weekend!
