Happy to learn there will be a starred review in School Library Journal for my YA adaptation of Charles C. Mann's 1493. I had terrific source material.

This piece about the work of a leading bryologist (moss researcher) is just one of the interesting, thought-provoking, or entertaining tidbits that have come my way via brainpickings.org, now celebrating its ninth anniversary. If you don't already know brainpickings, check it out. You might like what you find.

Super fun times. Water--not much, but some--seeped through our metal fireplace grille and tile fireplace surround last night.
