Hiatus, hibernation

I am taking a wee break from blogging in order to help with college applications, do taxes, clean the hovel, and perform other jolly duties. I'll see you when it's warmer... If you miss the snows of Cooperstown, you can always read native daughter Lauren Groff's The Monsters of Templeton when it comes out. Oddly enough, I've been writing and publishing Templeton stories for years, so I suppose we had the same Fenimore-Cooperish idea. She seems to be getting a nice solid push from the publisher. Last, a Marly album: here.
