Cystic Fibrosis and A Little Love Story

As many of my readers know, our older daughter was born with cystic fibrosis. As some of you also know, Vertex recently developed a drug, Trikafta, that promises to be of great help to 90% of people suffering with that awful disease.

Vale of the Gods: New Excerpt [Spoiler]

Hello!

1992 was the year I created Jael and Eadmund. And 1992 was the last time I saw U2 in concert. And this weekend, I finally saw U2 again, and in two weeks, I come to the end of Jael and Eadmund’s long journey. Feels kind of fitting really.

Others got louts to look and like you,
Your stick figure straddled backward
