I solemnly swear

I love receiving the following type of communication from readers, "Can you promise me that <insert their heart's desire here> will happen?" No matter how it comes—email, instant message, in person standing in front of a signing table—my reaction is always, always the same. That's when my chin tips down and my lips quirk up. [...]

Mica Redux

My life, in calendars
