From the April 2013 newsletter, by Maureen O. Betita
So, Spring has sprung. Easter is over, President’s Weekend is past
and we’re facing April. A simple month, a month with nothing super
special happening. Usually, I would be running amok, planning on attending
a few conventions. This time… nope. I hope to make the Nova Albion
convention at the end of the month, in San Jose. It’s a steampunk
thing and should be a nice break from reality.
Meanwhile, spring. Ah, the glory of the Monterey Bay! Poppies, ceanothus,
sour grass, wild currants…ah! We enjoy a wonderful change of seasons.
Not so drastic as those who have to wait for snow to melt. Me? I prefer
Spring cleaning, perhaps, is on your agenda. How about renewing the
commitment to writing regularly? The madness of the holidays are done,
we are preparing to slide into summer… this is the opportunity to
figure it out! Let’s do it! But take time to bring some daffodils
into the house and enjoy their scent . . .
