Remember in the movie Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs when Flynt pulls up that kitten bit on his computer screen and 3 hours fly by? Or maybe you don’t as, unlike me, you have not seen the movie 40,000 times because your preschooler is ever-enthralled with it (kittens, falling hamburgers, ratbirds and all). In any case (though not to be rude) imagine the flowers pictured here as those kittens as I work madly on a scecret project that comes with a deadline. No matter the outcome of this project, I do know that TBTW (my MG novel) is benefitting from the close attention—and despite my recent birthday and various forms of paralyses when it comes to a joyous celebration involving number combinations that include 4 but not 5 or 108 less a certain amount, etc. Flower Power!
