As a life-long pessimist, I like to tell people-who-call-me-on-it that optimists are never pleasantly surprised. It takes a lot of energy to search out that silver lining when the sky is filled with black clouds.
But early yesterday morning, I was pleasantly surprised—so much so that I lived the rest of yesterday in a fog of optimism.
Another of my stories sold and will be published this month.
Meanwhile, if you’re interested, go to The Arcanist for a quick five minute read, published at the end of August.

Congrats on the story publication!
Yes, that’s three this year. Very gratifying.
Loved the story!!! Beautiful plant. I need to get some gorgeous coleus transplanted to move before they freeze.
