A few notes and pix from our recent trip to Buenos Aires and Uruguay. Note: I don't take many photos; these were captured on the fly with my phone. The official trip photographer hasn't yet downloaded his images.

I turned in the first draft of my YA adaptation of Darwin's Origin of Species yesterday. It will take a while to become a book, but it's on its way.

Every month the University of Chicago Press gives a free e-book to anyone who asks for it. This month it's Arthur Conan Doyle's account of his time as doctor on a whaling ship in the Arctic.

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.

I read the Signature of All Things, and never knew what inspired it.

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.

Maria Popova of brainpickings.org reviews a fascinating book for the NYT:
Dark matter, according to Lisa Randall, may be responsible for the extinction of dinosaurs and the subsequent rise of mammals.

Super fun times. Water--not much, but some--seeped through our metal fireplace grille and tile fireplace surround last night. Possibilities range from (least awful) our chimney heeds a rain hat to (most awful) our roof is leaking. I'll find out Wednesday afternoon. This is one of those times I miss being a renter.
