So far 2012 has been cold. I always want to hibernate this time of year, post-holidays and winter chilled. Curling up in cups of coffee and trying to get the hang of a brand new year, though I also like to think of this time of year as a trial period, an in-between time before Chinese New Year arrives and the Year can be New all over again, and dragon-y as well.

It’s quiet here in these last year of the bunny weeks, which I need. Time off is not really time off when caught up in a rush of holiday stuff. I am cleaning my apartment and hiding from the cold outside. Slowly catching up on long neglected correspondence and apologizing to the patiently waiting books on the ever-growing to-read shelf. I am considering taking a week off from the internet next week, I’ll see how I feel on Monday. I am feeling extra thoughtful but the thoughts are all floating snowflake thoughts, drifting through my brain and not settling on anything.

Maybe I should just let them drift.


These are my January event dates, as far as I know. I’ll update any missing info when I have it.

I just got my first pair of Fluevogs. Possibly my only pair, unless I win Lotto. 😎 Come check them out, I posted a pic! Wish I still lived in Nashville sometimes… especially now that you’re going there. When are you coming to Long Island?

    Belated Fluevog love! I have long wanted the same style only less orange but still don’t have them, I have boots in the same shoe family that are my very favorites, though.

    Not sure when I’ll get to Long Island, probably hibernating for a bit after this stretch.

I love the kitty picture! I wish I could go to one of those events. I live in Canada where it is unseasonably warm.

Laura · January 5, 2012 at 10:55 pm

You’re coming to Atlanta!!!! I can’t wait. Love your book, read the advance copy…can’t WAIT to meet you!! 🙂

A kitty, some sparkle, and an old typewriter – gorgeous!
I’m going to try and make the Newton event.
Have you ever come to Jabberwocky in Newburyport. I’m betting you did and I missed it. Great venue. 🙂

Happy drifting.

When will you be on the west coast?

    erin · January 17, 2012 at 9:37 am

    I was there in September, likely won’t be again until the paperback tour and I’m not sure when that will be yet. Sometime later this year.
