Busy Couple of Days

I'm officiating a wedding on Saturday. I will be busy Friday with the rehearsal and Saturday with the actual wedding. Expect me to be less visible those days. Sunday ... dunno yet. I might decide to spend the day on the couch, or go out somewhere, or catch up on backlogged email.

Happy Birthday, Haikujaguar!

Today is haikujaguar's birthday and she wants ... audience interaction! So here we go.

You can find links to her fiction on this page. I think The Admonishments of Kherishdar is my current favorite, but it's hard to pick just one. All of these tales are portals into other worlds full of people who think very differently than humans.

Here are some of my favorite pictures:

This is Dlane, one of the lead characters in The Worth of Shell. She does not believe that biology is destiny. I love this picture for its sublime grace.

This is the Slave Queen, featured in Lisinthir's story arc from the Alliance setting. I love this picture for its insanely detailed mosaic.

And here is Lisinthir himself, one of my favorite bad boys. I love this picture because it shows the dichotomy between body and soul.

We've known each other for well over 10 years now, haikujaguar and I. We've seen jobs come and go, stories hatch and fledge. We've shared a great many friends. We've watched the rise of cyberfunded creativity. Come and share the ride with us, if you love adventure.

... happy birthday, arii, and many more.
