(Why am I naming days?)
1/3/15, Day 14,523 (Mercena Day 141): Turning Over
Mercena has flipped from her back to her front only once before, and neither Heather nor I was there to see it. Today, she did it for the second time, and this time, it felt as though it were on purpose (according to Heather, because I missed this time, too). This is especially impressive given the fact that she had a fever from her vaccination shots yesterday and was a little extra tired and fussy. This young human wants to move!
The day was otherwise very productive: I had two separate phone calls with very dear old friends about some new collaborations. I’m continuing to write and plot After Earth, and a bunch of exciting Flux projects are moving into greater clarity.
This blogging is making a difference–I very nearly went to sleep early in the night, but on the off chance that you (yes, you) might read this, I stayed awake to check a few more things off my techniques list, and managed to avoid the siren song of the open bottle of Malbec one more night.
Technique never stands still: it only advances or retreats…
Writing: 172 out of 221 days (After Earth)

What small things did I do today to help build the Honeycomb?
(And what does it mean to “Help build the honeycomb?”)
- Ate and cooked local, organic, vegetarian food, and used cloth diapers for Mercena;
- Signed a petition in support of the United Nations Watercourses Convention.
