So, I am Much Improved. Not quite Well, but you can see it from here.
Despite the oximeter, which claims I’m getting ‘way plenty air, I still feel that there could be some considerable improvement on that front. So, I’ve been — gently and carefully — practicing yoga breathing while laying on a rolled-up towel, along the length of my spine, so that my chest is open and receptive. I’m taking it as a positive sign, that I can now do these things without coughing my lungs out.
Steve — who you will remember started this journey a couple days ahead of me — is also Much Improved, though he’s not using the Well-word, either. We’re both being very cautious, and I’m not noticing that either one of us is turning down any naps.
So, that. Yesterday, I actually opened the file for Alliance of Equals and fixed a problem that had moved me to tears a couple weeks ago. Brain coming back online = excellent.
Today’s snailmail brought us tube from David Mattingly. Inside the tube, was a print — Number 1 of 50! — of the cover art for Dragon in Exile! It’s even more bright and beautiful in person than it is on the screen (here, take a look). I’m really looking forward to getting it framed and up on the wall.
If you’d like a copy of the print on your wall, write directly to David at davidATdavidmattinglyDOTcom. But you better hurry: at least three of that limited run of 50 are already spoken for.
I’d like to thank those folks who have taken the time and trouble to review Carousel Seas. And, for those who missed the news, due to the press of holiday business — the ebook edition of Carousel Seas is now available in multiple formats from Baen.com, and in Kindle format, from Amazon.
. . .and that? Is all I’ve got.
Everybody take care.
