Racing deadlines

Absolute silence around here. Sorry. It seems like I've been racing deadlines since... Hm. Can't remember when the clockwork suddenly wound up so tightly. August? September?

Aketur II

First to finish the translation, then edits, then more of same. I rush through routines and sandwiches with pbj and edits, and the weeks just slip by. But this one Sunday in January we managed to sneak in a trip to the park to go sledding. Here's the robotfighter and his beloved Tante Line.

And me? Why didn't I go sledding?

One small step
Well, behind the little polar expedition hero, that's me at the bottom of the slope, drinking coffee with my mother. I'm the red bell-shaped one.

Tick, tock. The race is on!

In other news, this made me cry today:

The Little Hands of Asphalt - Fitzcaraldo from APPARATET on Vimeo.

It's one of the bands my brother plays in. So good.

Oooh, I'm jealous of your snow. The tulips and jonquils are already coming up here. They'd be lovely in a month. Now they're just disconcerting.

Also, you're bell-shaped and ADORABLE. Hmph.

We got the speed, but you're leading the race. You are my front runner, always.

Hello Tone, I'm English but I live in the Ethiopian Highlands and I recently ordered your book, 'The Twistrose Key', for my two children because I think it is exactly the sort of book they'll love. (I just finished reading Astrid Lindgren's 'The Brothers Lionheart' to them and they enjoyed that.) We read about you in the January issue of the Aquila magazine for children. The book reviews on Amazon were excellent, so congratulations. We can't wait for the book to arrive through the post! The snow in your photographs looks lovely (though I realise these photos were taken a year ago - no doubt you've been very busy since your book was pusblished). With best wishes from a hot, sunny Ethiopia.
