Had a great birthday. Celebrated with family and friends, and signed copies of Shrapnel: Arestia Rising over at Comics for Collectors. Met fans of Shrapnel, fans of my Idlewild trilogy and fans of the Star Trek episodes I worked on. A really good time. Felt very fortunate and enjoyed a sense of relative harmony with the universe. Existence and consciousness too often go taken for granted, but right now I'm feeling deeply appreciative.
Don't always feel that way, of course. Some days I'm down. Frustrated with the world or with myself. But it's been pretty decent lately, these past nine days since my birthday.
Hope you're doing well, too. How are things?
