Good Things

I was named a finalist by American Horse Publications for my story, “Finding Safe Harbor”, about eventing a pony (pictured here), published in Horse Illustrated May 2012.

I have a slew of recent horse show ribbons hanging on my wall. Yes, my office has the design aesthetic of a horse-crazy 12-year-old.

Today is my 25th wedding anniversary. [last year]

I’m feeling pretty slick today.

[Not that I’m the least bit superstitious – touch wood – but I did worry that recounting all this good fortune would be taunting the universe. However, I prefer to see it as narratively balancing all the whining I did last year and am sure to do in the future.]
