Hello, everyone.

This is my mom's book.

By that, I mean she wrote it. She's been working on it for 15 years. It's about my dad's time in the hospital, in the 8 months between his accident and his death. I've read it, of course, in the process of proofreading it. I found it interesting because, even though I lived it, my memories of that time are mostly of playing with Charley in the hospital solarium, and being stuck in the fresh hell of a new junior high school. So this book gave me the chance to see that time through my mom's eyes, and everything she had to deal with at my dad's side.

It's finally published, available, out there! And we are all so very pleased! If you know anyone who enjoys reading books about normal families and life and tragedy, or if (heavens!) you are such a person yourself, please pass the word along!

On a related note, does anyone (Sofia, I'm looking at you) know anything about how libraries choose their books? If I were to buy a copy of this book and offer it to my local library, do you think they would take it and actually make it available on the shelf? Or would it just go into one of those library exchanges?

New Niece

Well, I guess it's time I recorded another milestone: I have a niece.

My friend Mel (mother also of my first nephew, Gabriel) gave birth at 4:30am February 23rd to Emily Rowyn.

When Gabe was born, I was halfway across the country, in Wisconsin. Now I'm only 300 miles away. Hopefully, in a couple weeks, I'll be able to scoot over to Anchorage for the weekend and visit with them.

Welcome to the world, Emily. Can't wait to meet you!
