Working, swimming, working more, cleaning, working.
(On that---working again with Larry Niven--yay! We've resumed work on the Strange series)

Victorian green is the color of copper patina. It looks good on Poppet, don't you think?

With a bit of thinking in the middle. Have so many things to catch up with you on. But today is a studio day and I must get to it. Saw Slumdog Millionaire last night. Amazing soundtrack. Really, truly a quality film. Orion and I will swim this afternoon. Possibly I'll find my brain in the pool---always the underlying angst. We're all feeling the effects of our world environment. I tell myself more often than usual not to panic, step back from the details, way back, no, a bit more. It's life. There will always be something to worry about, to force us to exercise new muscles, to become stronger, to separate the worry from the wonder, which can be obscured by our fears.
Wonder is always there, patiently waiting for us to notice.
Poppets know this. Silly humans!

Right. Just keep swimming.

Now what is the poppet in black reading? I can't make it out. The cover looks a bit like The Lord of the Rings...

I'm awfully tempted to ask you how many Reading Poppets there are going to be, and what they will be reading. Maybe they haven't decided yet.

POPPETS and CTHULU!!!!!!!!

Lisa, I may have to pledge my undying love to you. It's like you know our family. This is even better than "It's the Great Old Ones Charlie Brown."

Ah! Hi, Just found and stumbled into your blog, incredible and mesmerizing work!

I'm cracking up at how sweet cthulu looks. There's something so wrong, and yet so deeply right about that. Words to sooth the savage beast. :)

Stacey said...

lmao that would be "soothe."

Hi K: It's "The Outsiders and Other Stories" by H. P. Lovecraft

Drinne: Sometimes I believe Poppets are the Great Old Ones.

Sprite: Welcome! Look around, head over to the forums.

Stacey: My favorite flavor; right with a touch of wrong

everyone: please welcome Sprite!

WV: whilsy
