Then last night, walking through the micro-cooled mists of downtown Palm Springs, I felt an unexpected and sudden sense of home. Am I falling in love with this desert?
In July, perhaps I'll come to my senses.
I truly enjoyed the Poppet Planet Launch party. There were exceedingly nice people there and I heard some insightful and thought-provoking comments.
Poppets tend to keep very good company.
There are some photos of the fun, and the fabulous cake created by Heidi (faeriedusted), here http://www.poppetplanet.com/forums.html in "Spare Parts."
I enjoyed a bit of clowning around with Larry Niven, whose brilliance is complimented by a twinkling sense of humor.
I'm extremely pleased to tell you that he has agreed to adopt the "Strange Light" title in the Strange chapbook series.
The title is Larry's own suggestion, and seems to fit him perfectly. I'm looking forward to creating images for Strange Light. How cool is that? Already I'm clearing a room in my brain. Now to clear my schedule. No better motivation than a project I can't wait to dive into.
There's more...but Blogger imaging program seems to have stopped working for the moment.
In the meantime, I've put some Little Red Poppets up on Ebay, and a few of the "Little Pink" open edition casting as well.You can find them here: Poppets
oh yay oh yay oh yay, I got a little pink :D. Balticon looks like it was so much fun. Wish I could've been there. Looking forward to Strange Light. Sounds like a great collaboration!
Hello, glad to hear Balticon went well. I sent you an e-mail awhile ago, but I'm not sure if I had your address down correctly. The gist of it was that A) My mom loved the rat and poppet, so thanks again! and B) I found a Neil rat at DreamHaven books. He is now mine. I think its cool they sell some of your stuff there. Thanks for a second time, appreciations on my behalf. Cheers.
Welcome back! Congrats on scoring Larry Niven, that is way cool!!!
I haven't read anything by Larry Niven before, so I'm going to run away and find books by him now...
Balticon sounds like it was great fun!
My dear, you're not falling in love with the desert, you were experiencing the relief of being out from under the oppressive humidity of a Washington summer **grin**.
I wouldn't mind escaping this oppressive humidity for a while...
Spectacular to see you again! We could have used a bit of desert in the hotel to suck out some of the humidity...
Schrodinger's Poppet says "Hallo!" from Columbia, MD.
20 miles away and I wasn't able to get there =o( I should have pouted more, then they would have let me go.
and yes, the humidity sucked; it made me appreciate the frigid Oakland night air.
