It’s a beautiful sunny day here. Perfect for a BBQ with friends and family, even if the gathering is a small one due to social distancing. But let’s all take time to honor all the men and women (and four-legged soldiers 🦮) who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms and liberties and for the security of all our loved ones. You will never be forgotten. 🇺🇸

Another morning routine (after coffee prep): Duncan and Echo get their teeth brushed daily, which from their expressions is not a favorite part of their day, but it’s important for many reasons. Healthy mouth=healthy heart and body. And like getting my pages written every day, consistency is the key. 🔑 I use @petco brand Well & Good toothpaste for dogs. 🦮

Kayaking is an important component of my life. I find, when I am trying to untangle a knot within a story, going out on the lake helps me sort out the issue. Also, it helps me untie both my mind and body.

While I don’t enjoy coffee every morning, sometimes it's a necessity- especially when it is rainy and cold outside. What do you do for a gloomy Monday pick me up?

Hello, everyone, I would like you to meet George. George hangs around the area where I launch my kayak 🛶, and we have become mutual friends. He sometimes keeps me company when I’m out on the water until he gets bored and then heads back to his cove. 🦆

This has been hanging in the house for going on 15 years, a reminder of an action set piece from an early Sigma novel 🖼. Anyone want to guess which book and the location?

Thanks for sending sunshine ☀️ out my way and melting most of the winter snow—along with thawing the small lake here. @DuncanandEcho are ready for a swim (I would let them, except for all the leeches—yes, they’re in there). ...

My first day on the kayak this season. Does this count as social distancing?!? What are you doing to stay sane (ie., need more inspiration)? ...

Remind me not to complain about the snow. A compass winner sent this pic of him and his dog Miko with his prize in Quebec (thanks, Claude!). Glad that compass is being put to good use. ...

With delays in Amazon book deliveries, questions have reached me about where to get copies more quickly. 📚
Many big chains DO have copies on hand, so I gathered a convenient list here. I hope everyone is staying safe and sane out there. Find links to my book at these stores through the link in my bio.
