This lovely fellow was given to me at Trolls&Legendes. He will remain in my office as a lovely memento of a trip to Belgium that was far too short!
I met many lovely people there, enjoyed some amazing costuming (there were a number of stilted costumes that towered over us as they stamped about!), had some great conversations over good food and listened to some lively music. Including some played on a rather interesting axe! There were, of course, wandering musicians as well, who added a great deal to the mood at the gathering.
So, I signed many books, met many friends, and then endured the long airplane ride home. Since then, it has taken me a day or so to catch up with myself, so please excuse the long silence.
Tacoma, of course, greeted me in its own peculiar way. Sitting at my kitchen table yesterday, in the middle of the afternoon, full daylight, I saw a coyote come streaking down the street and dash into the yard of house across the street.
Luckily all my cats were inside!
