Most of you know I’m a mathematics enthusiast and I regularly go to Pat Ballew’s superb blog. Today was the 59th day of the year and he posted a magic square with 59 as the center. Each row, column and diagonal adds up to 177. I decided to have a little fun and with Little d's help design my own grid with these numbers.

Here's a sample of my latest article (and excerpt) on WIZARD AND GLASS:
Back in town, Jonas learns an emissary from John Farson has arrived and goes to meet him. The encounter startles Jonas, but, perhaps even more us the reader.
Jonas whirled on his heels, suddenly feeling old and slow. Standing there was a man of medium height, powerfully built from the look of him, with bright blue eyes and the rosy cheeks of either good health or good wine. His parted, smiling lips revealed cunning little teeth which must have been filed to points—surely such points couldn’t be natural.[…]“You know my name; I would know yours.”“Call me Walter,” the man in black said, and the smile suddenly fell off his lips. “Good old Walter, that’s me. Now let us see where we are, and where we’re going. Let us, in short, palaver.”

I've been working on a project devoted to the work of Tom Paine and decided to start a Twitter account where I tweet his quotes and offer facts on the man's life—it just went live today. If you are on Twitter, I'd love to generate some followers.
