We are just past the equinox, it’s staying light ’til 8 or 9 (a small harbinger of the all-night light we’ll start getting in about a month) and there were fox tracks all over the gravel pit today, including some that told the story of a curious little fox that wanted to see the world from higher up!
This was the first thing out of the ordinary that I happened to notice (beyond the fox tracks in general). You can see some tracks up top of this old flatbed in our gravel pit and the mark in the snow where it jumped off.

Especially this year. Throughout February it snew and snew, and then snew some more, and now … look at it out there. ;__; I mean, it’s beautiful, BUT. This is the time of year when it feels as if winter will never end. (This picture is from a couple of days ago, when it was sunny. Today it was snowing again. AARGH.)
It doesn’t help that I was sick for half of February, so I’m behind on everything.
But I’m digging myself out from under a to-do pile. I’ve finally got the website redesigned for a newer, cleaner, more mobile-responsive look. There’s now a proper blog again (I want to start posting some free fiction here), the Short Stories page has been restored after being eliminated in the last redesign, the Start Here page has been updated with all my current projects, and the Books page has been updated with a bunch of new stuff. I’ve added a page for 2018 shows (such as they are).
And the snow will melt, and spring will come! It’s just going to be a month or so before we see any proper progress on that …

A new year is upon us, the days are getting longer, and the site has a new, cleaner look. I plan to update more often this year. There’s a lot of news forthcoming from Icefall Studio (new books! new publications! new art!) so stay tuned for that in coming months, even if we’re currently stuck in the March doldrums when it feels like winter is never going to end.
