Safe and Sound

My darlings! I'm safe and sound in storm-battled Vermont. I live on a hill, a bit away from running water, so we've had to deal with nothing more than a little inconvenience. The rest of the state is a mess, and I hope you can send your prayers and good wishes for everyone hurt by Hurricane Irene.
In the meantime, I'm writing my little heart out, and I'll have a big, formal announcement very very soon.
