“Resolutions?” is the title of chapter 23 of Magician’s Misfortunes, my weekly serial about a government magician whose life has gone very sour. With a title like that, you can guess that it’s the end of the story (or is it?), so I will say no more.
And it’s time for the blog to go on hiatus for a while. I’ve got a birthday to celebrate over the weekend, some personal affairs to clean up, and some adult education courses to prepare. Those of you who follow the sister blog Sillyhistory should see some new posts up starting in late March when I start teaching a course on 19th century American communes, the places that inspired Prophecies and Penalties.
Until the next story, or book review, or belated review of a movie several decades old, take care and goodbye!
Good luck with everything, dear friend!
I love that map.
It’s a detail out of a much larger map, which you can see here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Carta_Marina.jpeg
Somebody clearly had only heard of whales and orcas second-hand. And I don’t even know what that other thing is.
A monster, of course. And see my previous reply.
Happy. Birthday! I am a February baby too! I am getting cataract surgery for my birthday, how about you? 👐 😄
I don’t know where those hands came from! Just put the smile in for something I both look forward to and dread.
And when is YOUR birthday, Judy? I hope the cataract surgery goes smoothly.
Well…Feb 25th, yours wasn’t on Valentine’s day was it!!??? That would be convenient! I got married on my husbands birthday….I thought that would be convenient but he seems to forget his birthday…so hard to be up in arms about forgotten anniversaries!! LOL!!
It is indeed on Valentine’s Day, Judy. Makes it easy for EJ to remember. On the other hand, it means I don’t forget to get her something for Valentine’s Day, either!
Happy birthday Brian. Take your time but I look forward to your return.
Thank you. I’ll still be following blogs, including yours, Chris. 🙂
Happy birthday, whenever it was or is! We’ll be here waiting! Have a good one!
It has passed, on Valentine’s Day.
Still, happy birthday!
