I was so excited to receive an ARC today! (Had to look it up. ARC stands for Advance Reviewer Copy.) And I printed out the whole book on 12" x 18" paper so Lucille can read it. I cleaned my print head three times; looks like I may be needing a new printer soon (?)

Art Market San Francisco

I loved spending time with my friend Anne at her booth this past weekend.

One of the best things about Art Market was its location: Fort Mason. When you turned into a zombie, overwhelmed with the art and the crowd, you could go up to the lounge, have a drink, and look out the window.

When I got home, I slogged along the Coastal Trail...

and cut out my latest newspaper poster and hung it in my kitchen.

The Little Gallery That Could (And Did)

As well as being fortunate enough to write and illustrate children's books, I'm privileged to work for my friend Anne's art gallery. She started this tiny gallery called FOG on the outer edge of San Francisco in 2015.

A few months ago Anne applied to be in Art Market San Francisco, and she got in! FOG will be exhibiting among other galleries from around the world: London, Vancouver, New York, Tokyo, Paris, Seoul– as well as other big Bay Area galleries. Visit us at booth #523, near the café!

Lucille, my 94-year-old pal who walks to the Y every morning, and then walks three miles after lunch, GOT HIT BY A CAR last week. That's Lucille's daughter Lauren on the far right.

Kaiser

I switched From Blue Shield to Kaiser Permanente in January. (Why did I not do this ten years ago? Kaiser is so organized and so responsive. And the cost is less.)

Today I had to get a hearing test because it turns out I'm not as good a listener as I thought I was. Look what was right outside my doc's office!
