My older son wanted me to remind folks that the latest issue (108) of Space and Time Magazine is out and available. 

The Little Man, engrossed in the latest issue of Space and Time


As you can see I can't tear him away from it!



Woah! I think he just got the creeps from that story...



My younger son is less enamoured with the reading these days, instead he just puts the headphones on and rocks out to the tunes.  I caught him here calling out for Freebird.  Dude, wait for it, that track will come up.  What kind of a dad do you think I am?  


Anyway, I wanted to say thanks to everyone for the well wishes on my new son's birth, and for the new story sale.  Hopefully, life will soon settle down to a more regular level of insanity, and I'll get back to more regular postings.

Today my son is half a year old.   Um, did I blink or something?  Cause I could swear that he was just a tiny little thing, barely able to keep his eyes open yesterday.   Okay, he never fit into the palm of my hand or anything, he's been a big boy since birth.   (In fact, I'll be rather surprised if he doesn't end up taller than his old man, but that's a few more eye-blinks away yet.)  It is amazing how so much can be packed into such a short time.   And yet, when I left for work, I couldn't help but sneak one extra look at him sleeping, trying to fix that cherubic face in my mind, because I know that it's not going to last forever.   It's my own little way of taking a snapshot.  Just not one I can share with others.

This week has also brought me some news on the writing front.   Over the weekend, I received a rewrite request.   This is my first rewrite request, and that has moved that story back to the top of my work heap, as I try to understand what the editor wants, and imagine how to deliver.  Yes I was excited.   I still am thrilled at the opportunity, and hope the hard work will pay off.

Last night, I got even more news.  Another submission has been accepted for an anthology.  You probably would have heard my shout of joy when I read it, but I'd just spent an hour getting the little man to sleep, and as exciting as the news is, I wasn't about to undo an hour's worth of soothing, and rocking, and effort.   So it was a mental shout out.  

So, yeah, I'm bouncing off the walls right now, much like the icon below.   And for once it's only partly due to the Starbucks Venti I treated myself to this morning.
