Had another article published today. I guess I’ll think of myself as a writer when I no longer say that, and it’s a regular occurrence. Still no payment, but I’m working on that.

I remember when I outgrew my father’s little dictionary that he’d bought in Canada in the 50s. (Passed on to the receptionist at work.) Too many words that I looked for weren’t in it. Now I have a ’99 dictionary. The last millennium. Do you know that “New Age” and “trail mix” are in the dictionary? “Mixture of dried fruit and nuts eaten as a snack food.”
