I finished reading Rick Steves' Travel as a Political Act last night, a book I recommend to every reader, travel-minded or not. That leaves me free to start reading my newest acquisition, Creative Colloquy Volume Two, released last night at a gala in Tacoma's pretty-much-perfect B Sharp Coffee House. My time-travel story "Personal History" is included in this anthology of South Puget writers, and what's more, it's been beautifully illustrated by Carrie Foster and Michael Haeflinger, a first for me. I heard five of the other stories last night (of 19 total), and I was pleased and excited by the quality. I think you will be, too.

As always, I've been impressed by the work Jackie Fender and Joshua Swainston put into Creative Colloquy, and you shouldn't be surprised if I remain highly involved with that worthy group in 2016.
