                                        for an instant
                                        in a lifetime

Happy Fathers’ Day!

Lavender Lynk, Everyone!

My wife and I recently returned from a three week vacation at our home state of New Jersey.  Homes of family and friends, food and drink (everyone seemed to have anything-you-want liquor cabinets), the New York Broadway Show Jersey Boys, a very cold swim at Asbury Park, a magical day of feeding a deer at a cabin in the Poconos, fine restaurants, on-and-off rain and warm humid weather, tons of cameras clicking away, all but fifteen minutes of smooth air travel, and moments of inspiration for both writing and illustrating.   Time to catch up on the blog world.  And yes—it’s great to be home again.

To all you Daddies—Happy Fathers’ Day!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   fathers_blog_text
