First, to start with some good news, 101 Words has published my short story, “Two Perspectives!” It has been a huge honor, and their website has a whole archive of flash fictions that are fun to read and check out.
Additionally, my violin playing has been coming along bit by bit. I’ve managed to play a few simple songs, such as “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” “Row, Row, Row, Your Boat,” and “You are my Sunshine,” although I’m still a bit too self-conscious to play them with much of an audience.
Now for the chaotic news… during the past two days, there has been a massive wildfire raging down in the valley, which was possibly the result of some circuit issues (the exact cause hasn’t been verified yet). It is getting dangerously close to the area where my family lives, but we’re hopeful that a tropical storm due to sweep through Southern California might help firefighters to combat the blaze. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that everything comes out all right.
