Waning Moon

Mercury Retrograde

Cloudy and cold

I have a post over on Ink-Dipped Advice about one of the “gotcha” questions often used in interviews.

The storm wasn’t as bad as predicted here on Cape. More icy rain yesterday, high winds, but not the kind of snow that’s hit other areas. I’m grateful not to have to shovel, but I wish we had a little bit of white stuff making it all pretty.

Created the clip for the article that went live, and sent it and the link off to those who contributed quotes. Go out some LOIs. Worked on GAMBIT COLONY.

Someone with whom I was friends in first grade tracked me down. Our 40th HS reunion will be held, virtually, at the end of this month, and she’s hunting down classmates and their stories. We had a nice catch-up, I’m preparing the information they need and getting it out by the end of the week. I don’t keep in touch with many people I knew in elementary and high school, our lives have diverged so much, but it was pleasant to catch up.

It would be easy to stress about the reunion, but why? These people are no longer a part of my life. I wish them well, and I might enjoy an hour or so catching up on Zoom, but it’s the past, and I’m busy working on my future.

In the afternoon, I caught up on box purging, so I’ve back to where I wanted to be for this point in the week.

Still no luck getting a vaccine appointment from my mom. My State Senator is doing an information session tonight, which I will virtually attend, and maybe we can get some real information. He’s as frustrated with the Governor as the rest of us.

Knowledge Unicorns was fine. Steady work on homework. I’m so proud of them. We started talking about Black History Month. I mentioned, when I was in school and we read Black authors for BHM, and I asked why we had to wait until February, why we couldn’t read them all year, and someone in my school said, “Well, why would you want to?” which is just wrong on so many levels. I can’t see we’ve make much progress since then, and we need to.

Today, I have to go to the office for a few hours of overlap with colleagues. Hopefully, I can join Remote Chat in the afternoon, and then purge more boxes. I already have more than another carload of stuff to go to the dump.

Working on the book for review, working on contest entries, working on a pair of pitches for my editor.

And so it goes.

Have a good one, friends.
