Fifteen minutes ago, huge flakes were spiraling slowly down from the clouds. And now they've stopped, and the sun is shining. The temperature is supposed to rise to 40˚F today. The long, slow melt has begun. But I know it doesn't mean warm weather any time soon. Last year, we didn't have a day reach 70˚F – in Providence – until well into May. Last year – in Rhode Island – it was late May, early June, before the trees were well and truly green. And I have to focus on the beginning of the melt, that this is better than the smothering snow, and not consider how long until I feel anything remotely like summer, or I feel the panic coming on. The panic's like a wet towel over my face.

At least we're you lot are back on Daylight Saving Time, which means I can stop explaining to people why I spend the entire year on DST, every year since 2003.

Yesterday, I finally got back to work on the screenplay. Which is really all I can say about that. For now.

Spooky took Hubero out on his leash/harness yesterday, and he apparently had a blast. I wish there were photos, because I didn't see it. He came to us harness trained, part of the mystery of the life he lived before we adopted him in 2006.

Spooky made Indian food for dinner.

We may never find a new artist for The Good, the Bad, and the Bird. I've now rejected a half dozen since Joëlle Jones quit to chase greener pastures. I'm pretty sure I no longer care, one way or the other.

Kathryn's asking Selwyn how long before we have to begin worrying about bears.

Later,
Aunt Beast

Artists, snow, wet wool blankets
I was thinking. Which, for me, is not a good thing. One artist that comes to mind is Gianluca Paglirrani, who did Ignition City for Warren Ellis. Another artist, totally different, is Michael Cho, who just finished his new book called The Shoplifter. Then there is Ming Doyle who lives in Somerville and I forget what she was doing but it was good. Also Paul Dufield who did FreakAngels for Warren Ellis. Also Julian Totino Tedesco who did a beautiful cover of the graphic novel, issue #1 of The Drawing of the Three. Hell, what do I know anyway.
Yes, the snow is oppressive. Like a wet cold wool blanket pressing down on my consciousness. Will it ever go away? My Honda Civic has these cheap little bumpers that are literally coming away from the body of the car and I have to press them back in. No sense having the body shop fix it tip' the snow goes.
Ah Daylight Savings Time. It came early this year, I think. But there we go again. When I think, I'm in trouble. I need to take a Suboxone.
Peace to you. No, not church shit. Just like that.

I think that's wise no matter what. It is necessary to believe in spring right now.
