I received word yesterday that a little essay of mine will be published in the warm weather issue of The Duck and Herring Co. Pocket Field Guide.

The essay is a tad old--in it, J.C. is referred to as my "girlfriend"--but it's still something I like. It's called "The Perseids," and here's my one-sentence teaser:

"[J.C.] and I are fabulous drinkers, fantastic dreamers, and when we combine the two--when we drink and dream--the world becomes right and just and conquerable."

If you're looking for something to do with the weather the way it is, the Duck and Herring Co. cold weather guide is available now.

Yay! I'm so glad it's seeing the light of day. You know, after we were talking about it on my blog, Chad P brought it up a few days later. I told him he should email you to freak you out about the coincidence. I don't know if he did?

Anyway, congratulations!! w00t!!

Thanks, Donna. I never would have written it if it weren't for your assigning that essay by Annie Dillard. And no word from Chad P. Did you know, by the way, that he's blogging?

Thanks, Lisa! I'll let y'all know when it comes out.
