A moment to think. January is upon us.
Off and running. It seems that this month is flying by and just while ago it was about watching how the last year was ending. There is much to do and much to be hopeful about inspite of very substantial challenges.
My father has been in the hospital now for a few months and matters are not better. We can only stand by and let him know that we're there. I myself have a healthy dose of catholic guilt about being all the way up in SF and he's in a hospital in Tarzana deep in L.A. My brothers and sisters have been very vigilant and keep me abreast of the situation. We will drive down to see him this weekend.
Life and work goes on, though it's difficult to function with an eye to the phone and you don't really want it ring. There's much to draw and write as well as resolutions to maintain.
There are still a couple of posts about the Japan trip to do as well as images from the sketchbook. Enrico and I have met about our plans for conventions and books for the first half of this year and it looks like another challenging one. We will be at WonderCon this year so watch out for the post on that as it comes near.
If any of you are planning to book a hotel for San Diego for the summer's convention, you might want to head over that site. Most of the popular hotels that used to have rooms this early have sold out within the hour of opening its travel site. Whew! I had to settle for a hotel farther away and smaller accomodations. This thing is getting out of hand.
