Solution? Grabbed one of the ticky-tac dots we use to keep the rugs in place, cut it in half, and hey-presto, emergency dress tape!
I feel like my former theater wardrobe mistress would have been proud.

In the Jewish tradition, confessing to a sin and repenting does not immediately anoint you with forgiveness. Words are not enough, be they between you and another person, or you and your understanding of God. It is the point of where you recognize and acknowledge that you did wrong, and begin the effort to carry that wrong no further. But it is future actions that earn forgiveness, not merely mouthing the word of repentance.

Hey there. Between this cold that continues to linger, trying to get some writing and editing projects finished up, US politics (and a bonus of happier French politics), and the winery getting ready for our Spring releases this week, I've...not been a very good little blogger. In fact, I've been slacking on a lot of things, and I intend to catch up on all that in the next few days.
Stop snickering. I mean it! *stomps paw*
Meanwhile, Spring has arrived in Washington state - we've still got the occasional rain, but more and more often the days are sunny and warming, with just a nip of cool still remaining in the air. It's exactly the kind of weather than makes me want to go hiking... and I can't, because of this cough that's still lingering, making me more prone to sacking out for an hour on the sofa. But there will be hiking, and hike-blogging, too. Soon....
So, anyway. Not dead (yet). Getting better, even. Ignore that hacking cough behind the curtain....
Oh, and I'll be in Pittsburgh next weekend, at the Nebula Awards Conference. If you're there, or just in town, drop by and say hi!
A year ago, I got a not-unexpected phone call, and - days after having come back from NYC - turned around and went back.
There are endless iterations of Time, and none of them seem to be consistent. A year should not be both so short and so long.

If my boundary stops here
I have daughters to draw new maps of the world
they will draw the lines of my face
they will draw with my gestures my voice
they will speak my words thinking they have invented them
they will invent them
they will invent me
I will be planted again and again
I will wake in the eyes of their children's children
they will speak my words.

Since there seems to be some outraged confusion among Anons and Nonnys, let me clarify.
If you support the Trump/Pence/Bannon regime’s attempts to isolate, persecute, and otherwise remove basic civil and citizen’s rights from entire groups within our society, based on who they are rather than dealing with individual behavior on a case by case basis, yes I do think you’re behaving in a shitty and morally bankrupt manner, I find you personally distasteful, and I consider preventing you from carrying out your agenda(s) to be a moral obligation of a civilized nation.
And history’s got my back, on this one.
