A Good Day

Woke up not too early (the kids slept in until 6:45) and soon found a message from editor Seth Crossman at OG's Speculative Fiction, who said he wanted to buy my story 'Magician at the Court'. That's an absolute YIPEE! 'Magician at the Court' is a fairy tale, and it has raked up a lot of Nice-but-not-our-style rejections because of its omniscient point of view. I'm glad it has finally found a happy home :-)

After this splendid start, we took the kids and a couple of their friends on a picnic by the local lake. A quick sandwich got us started, and then the kids all got to race their bicycles along the lakeshore while the parents got to run beside them. Fortunately the girls put in a couple of stops to chat with the horses that graze the meadows by the lake, which made the 4-km trip almost leisurely. And the weather was absolutely beautiful for that kind of spring day -- 18 degrees C and a clear sky. So the evening here at the Drud household is a wee bit tired, but in the best mood possible. I hope you all catch a glimmer of that shining on you today.
