The clouds have arrived today, but it's 68˚F. Yesterday's high was 70˚F, lower than projected but it broke the record (from 2002). The windows were open all day. It was as marvelous as a March day in Providence can be.

We spent the day out. There was a trip to Paper Nautilus, and then we drove around town a bit, and then had a sushi lunch at Sakura on Wickenden (the best sushi I've had since leaving Atlanta), and then there was the antique shop across the street...and then home. It was the first real day out I've had in ages. We'd talked about driving down to Conanicut Island, but the wind would have been very cold. Better to enjoy the day's warmth someplace where we could feel the warmth. The sky was too vacant and too blue, but I kept my head down.

It was a good day.

We came home and worked on our jigsaw of Klimt's The Kiss.

The upside of Alabaster not being particularly popular is that I don't have to contend with a horde of homophobic comic-book readers flipping out over Dancy and Maisie (while secretly masturbating over those lurid images of hot girl sex).

Day before yesterday I announced the title of the Next New Novel over on Patreon. This is the sort of thing I'll be posting there first, as part of the rewards to backers. I'm calling it The Starkeeper. Details will be slowly forthcoming. And yes, I've shelved Interstate Love Song, for reasons I will eventually share here.

Toady, I only have to write.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

It was an amazing reunion, Dancy and Maisie. Thankfully the fourth issue made the 'cut' to have been included in my next subscription shipment sent out yesterday.

Thank you for the Patreon post regarding Interstate Love Song this morning. It makes perfect sense, the focus on The Starkeeper. It's very cool to be 'behind the scenes' as you are developing and writing the next novel.

I've been listening to "Machete" all day on repeat. It's brilliant. I also have a box of knives, my collection mixed with my father's.

That menu looks great. Do you mind if I ask what you guys ate? I love hearing about people's meals and being a little jealous. Sushi where I live is so hit or miss.

It really wasn't fancy. I have unagi nigiri and a tuna/cucumber roll.

Sounds like a lovely day, plus having great sushi would make any day better.

How long is your account open to pledge to Patreon? I can't do it this month but finances are opening up in April. I am pleased to see it going well so far and it is good to know it will give you ease w. writing the next book. I wish you the best.

It'll be running indefinitely. And even after we meet the $1,500 stretch goal (which we almost have), people will still be able to join in.

Thank you. I'll be joining when I'm able to do a monthly support.

Farther then you can see, closer than you think.
I haven't laughed in weeks, but still you did make me smile with that remark about Dancy. I wish she sold more. I still see a mini series with Dancy's name on it.
