Dare I say it? The past year has been a pretty amazing year. I don't mean that it has been free of problems. It hasn't. In fact, if I wasn't so overwhelmed by the good things, I might complain that this has been one of the most difficult years of my life. Instead, I'm thrilled to be employed as a teacher at DaVinci Academy, I'm overjoyed that Julie Wright and I have found a supportive and visionary publisher for The Hazzardous Universe, and I'm very optimistic about several other projects currently in development. Not to mention, there have been a number of wonderful experiences in my personal and family life, most of them too personal to share here. I feel a sense of gratitude, but also a little fear. I worry that my "15 minutes" will expire soon. So, I'm knocking on wood, hoping for continued satisfaction and success. I'm hoping that it's true that a little talent and lot of perspiration will go a long way.
As I mentioned, The Hazzardous Universe now has a publisher. If you would like to know more about our experience of finding a publisher, I suggest you read Julie's blog. I was going to write about it, but I'm an artist and she's a writer . . . she has already said it all more eloquently than I ever could.
