Are smoothies a super food?

I suppose it depends entirely on what’s in them. Mine aren’t filled with exotic extracts or rare fruits, but drinking one just makes me feel healthier and an overall better human.

How’s that for vapid?


I’m feeling a bit grouchy, but I’ve had two cups of coffee already so that’s not my excuse. It’s raining here, here being New York City/Gotham/the Big Apple which is not a terrible thing as it helps clean the sidewalks (just imagine tens of thousands of dogs doing their business and only some of their owners picking up after them). It’s Friday, too, which is always a reason to smile. I did make the mistake of starting my day off by reading the news so I suspect that’s the source of my mood. I will be beyond thrilled when the election is over, and then either elated or suicidal depending on the outcome.




I think it’s clear that I am not cut out for public relations. I haven’t posted here since December. I keep meaning to, then I get doing something else and forget. I’m comforted, however, by the notion that the world will keep turning whether or not I engage with social media.

I went through a loooong period when I wasn’t writing, but I’m beyond happy to say that’s in the past. I recently passed the 100 page mark of my next novel (another fantasy) and based on my progress I’ll have it complete before the end of the year. I’m aiming for sooner than that, but seeing as it’s been over five years since Of Bone And Thunder I’m not going to rush it…er, definitely not a problem of mine.

Hope everyone is staying healthy, sane, and safe during our current crises of the virus, the recession, and now social upheaval.
