It's been a minute. I had a lot of contract work I was doing, which was fun, and then a lot of moving.
Life has been... happening. I don't want to say hard, because lots of people have been having it hard. I don't want to say odd, because this is the kind of stuff that happens. I guess it's just been a lot at once.
My aunt and uncle both died recently. I got the news for each of them within about 24 hours. I'm not even sure how I feel. Getting hit with that all at once, putting it on top of everything else I'm trying to work through, it almost just pushes over the top and comes back around as numb. I know I miss them both dearly. My uncle was one of the people that I most connected with in my youth. He more or less introduced me to nerd culture. He was the first in our family to really have internet. He was sharing video games with me when I was still in single digits. He even took me to a Star Trek convention once. He was always ready with a joke and always ready to say something weird. That was my tio.
My aunt I didn't have as strong a connection with, but she was still a kind and wonderful woman. When my parents died, she was there, asking me how she could help, supporting me. Apparently she even kept the rest of the family up to date on my weird wanderings in China.
I miss them both.
But I need to keep moving forward. My writing has lagged, but I will have more and more stuff up here. Be prepared for some new game reviews here, some playlists, and, hopefully, updates on the Paladin.
Be Excellent to Each Other.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
