Today exploded in my face again.  The evening involved much hair-tearing and running around and yelling and looking things up on the internet. (Don't ask.)  After a couple of hours of this, I had to pause and listen to Garrison Keillor's Slow Days of Summer on continuous loop for about a half-hour before I was calm enough to get back to what I was doing.

By the time I pulled together this great blog post (or the first 1/4 of it) I realized two things:

1.) This is a multi-part series. And when I say multiple parts, I don't just mean the original four part series I had planned on: I mean that each of those parts are breaking up into multiple parts.

2.) I wasn't going to get through the first part any time before 3am, so I might as well bag it and do it right for next week.

It's theory rather than The Game anyway.  We'll see how it breaks down when I write more tomorrow and Saturday.  I'll post the schedule for it on Sunday (along with some pictures; I got a bunch of new images up at Self-Pub Book Covers, though they haven't got around to putting them up yet).

Until then, here is a relaxing picture of my boy Max, enjoying some slow days of summer:


See you in the funny papers.

At least you have good methods for calming yourself down! Love the picture of Max.

Max loves that window, even though he doesn't fit. I call him my "Beach Boy" because he's a big healthy blond dude who loves the sun even more than most cats do.
