Valentines week, a week to celebrate your loves or curse your loneliness depending on where you sit on the spectrum of romance. I'm fortunate in that I have love to celebrate but I do remember the dark times that came before and I offer sympathetic thoughts.
Here's what's been going on around these parts, for those not too busy staring longingly into their lover's eyes:
On Mind the Thorns:
The choice has been made that Regan will keep quiet and bide her time to strike back. But who can she call to help her? Emma? Thomas? Daryl? It's been a long time since we've seen Daryl. Is he still under contract with us?
On Bastion: The Last Hope
We are introduced to Max Ryan, an agent of the mysterious Project Bastion. We see a glimpse of this organization as it monitors the end of days. What is their role in all this? What will they do as the meteors continue to fall? Will they do anything?
On Fictional Omens
I responded to a critique that I was not passionate about the plight of Regan in Mind the Thorns. Being fair, I have lost some of my oompht for writing it which has been a mix of work, family, time management, and other projects. I take a few moments in this week's post to reflect on what kind of woman Regan has evolved into. Is she as much like Bella as I fear?
Xander is up with his grandparents for the weekend leaving the wife and I alone with the baby. So far we've done some cleaning, a little shopping and just enjoyed each other's company. Our prayers go out to a friend who's going through a rough time herself and we wish her well if she should read this.
And.... your weekly video:
This week's video is an homage and a hug to my beloved wife who has, though simply being mindful of food intake and personal will power, dropped 4 dress sizes in the last 4 months. Nothing like a little flash-mob cooking to remind us we could all eat a little healthier.
