After a tough spring
I just finished the first two books of a YA trilogy by Tracy Deon. First one is Legendborn. Second is Bloodmarked (just came out). Black girl magic, roots magic/ancestor magic, Arthurian legends, demons, solid racial/social analysis-- what more do you need? Oh, and now reading Redwood and Wildfire by Andrea Hairston-- adult fiction about black and indigenous folks in the SE/Great Migration. Some magic and a lot of deep, complex characters. It's just stunning.
I'm working and writing, reading when I can, cooking/preparing the mountain of vegetables from the CSA, enjoying walking back and forth to campus, and not getting out in the woods nearly enough.
I am going to walk by your house to see this garden! Reading a history of a terrible massacre possibly ordered by Brigham Young, romance novels, and articles about good management, leadership, and fundraising.
