Time to take a stand.
What a night last night. My family and I went to Longwood Gardens to see the hundreds of luminaries setup through the Gardens and then saw the fountains all lit up to music. The theme of the night was British Invasion and I can’t lie: I was singing loud for PAUL McCartney’s Live and Let Die. After a long week and starting Book 2 of the Werewhale saga, it was great to take some off to relax with my family. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
A little something to help quiet that self-critical voice. Happy Friday!
I finally caught up and saw My Cousin Rachel. Great mood, build up, but I didn’t think the film pulled together at the end. Is it worth watching? Yes, but I much prefer Far from the Madding Crowd. Check that one out!
Just got our copy of Wonder Woman in the mail today. Can't wait to see it again!
The last of this summer’s harvest. My daughter and I worked hard in watering and taking care of the plants all summer. Seeing what we showed brought me back to my grandfather teaching me how to garden back when I was a kid. When I’m not writing, I like getting my hands dirty gardening.
Do you want to escape for a while? Read the free prequel short story to my new novel Ahab's Daughter. Check it out!
Check out these great books! What would you suggest others to read?
It took us two nights to finish watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind on DVD, but I'm happy that my kids did sit through the 1977 movie. They don't make movies like this any more. The pacing is intentionally slow and the build up to the third act is just plan magical. If you haven't seen the movie, do check it out as it was recently in the theater for its 40th anniversary.
When I start researching a new book, I watch, listen and read all sorts of things. I've started to plot about book two in the Werewhale series. I heard Bjork's new song and wanted to share. It's pretty out there but I like that about her. https://youtu.be/LO-7Ondgk0M
Farewell to the Cassini spacecraft. I remember back in the late '90s when my wife (my girlfriend at the time) shared with me a PR brochure from NASA that she got from work that was all about the Cassini mission. Seven years later Cassini arrived at Saturn and has discovered more than we could ever imagine (who new that water was spraying off one of its moons as plumes?).
I love fantasy/science fiction, but I also love science. I have always been energized by seeing how ideas ...from one can influence the other. We have iPhones today (remember Star Trek communicators) and I want to thank all those who worked on the Cassini spacecraft mission. For 13 years, Cassini has orbited Saturn and taken amazing pictures. Please take a moment and look at the images from the NY Times website. They're a beautiful testimony of how wonderful our solar system is and puts in perspective how much more we have to learn. Farewell Cassini and thank you for the great science you've done for humanity. I will think of you as you burn up in Saturn's atmosphere this morning.
