beautiful morning, barely a ripple. so inviting I rsvp’d with a dip. cool on so many levels. Found a whelk and sea fan and thought about THE MERMAID DID IT–geez, wrapping it up–re-reading — to tell the truth, I’ve had more fun with this book than any other so far–a little out there–bits of mythology–moving ahead with E.J. and Fate, and the others (who haven’t met some shady demise). The book will be out in July, hopefully by the 4th. Happy shell hunting to you all, God Bless.
