Dead calm

Yes, friends and readers, if I had to choose just one nautical term to describe the signing this past weekend, I would choose “dead calm.” Which beats “mayday,” I suppose, but, still. Well, it happens to the best of'em. And on the bright side, between the long lulls, there were some real and rewarding moments of connection with readers and families, and also plenty of time for those of us at the signing table to try on pirate eye-patches, so that it was, in the end, a well-spent afternoon. (Accidentally wrote "singing table" on the first go-round there, which may have been a Freudian slip, but let's not dwell on that.) Thanks to the Museum for hosting and to those who stopped by!

Sorry to miss your signing, but I did happen to be in Astoria, Oregon last weekend, home of ye olde Columbia Lightship, and I thought of you. If you get a chance, you should come to Astoria for an afternoon of singing or signing, which ever you prefer. Also, it's the town where 'Goonies' was filmed, so you know, it's truly a hotbed of celebrity.
