More indiscriminate morsels

As I said previously, I’m making a trip the family farm this weekend.  The reason?  One of my aunts is flying in from New York for a visit.  I can’t wait to see her, the crazy ol’ lady, for I’ve not seen her in years and have missed her zany ways.  I only wish I could spend more time with her, but her journey southward came as a short-notice surprise to me.

I’ll do my best to grab some photos while I’m out there, but understand this trip already has its share of activities to fill two days, let alone one.

On another note, I have more news on the message I received from a publishing company looking to use one of my photos in an upcoming book.  The deal is moving forward.  The book is a nature guide.  It’s written by some very well-known naturalists.

No, I won’t reveal more information on that at present, and it’s unlikely I’ll reveal precisely which book or, if I do, which photo.  At least I won’t reveal all those details on this blog.  When and if this discussion culminates in publication, I’ll make that clear and will share the specifics with those who won’t use my real name and information for disagreeable purposes.  Remember I blog pseudonymously for a reason; therefore, understand my reason for not sharing the details openly here while that’s the case.

In the future, however, that will change.  Just not right now. . .  So you can expect to share in my excitement if this culminates in something cool.  Similarly, you probably can expect to know the name of the book should it happen.  Maybe.  What you won’t know is which photo is mine, and that because it will carry my copyright, something that would reveal my real and full name.

The weather today has been nothing short of extraordinary and most welcome.  Cool with a gusty north wind, the overnight hours and this morning welcomed life with a drenching rain followed by gray skies and brisk breezes.  The temperature is more than 30 degrees cooler than yesterday at this time, and it’s expected to fall another ten degrees before tomorrow morning.

Ah, autumn has arrived.

And the rest of the week has highs at least 20 degrees cooler than it has been.  I can’t tell you how happy I am!  While others at work today arrived wearing jackets and complaining of the cold and having to use their heaters for the first time in what seems like forever, I dressed in my normal attire and wallowed in the colder temperatures.  It’s still warmer than I like, but this certainly is a step in the right direction.

I’m on call this week.  Keep that in mind if posting seems sporadic.  A dearth doesn’t equate to abandonment, only an attempt to pay the bills.
