Quick, find me some wood to knock on.

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.
