December 17-18, 2009:

My back seems to be good one day, terrible the next. I am going to physical therapy and water therapy and doing my stretching exercises daily, but I can never guess from one day till the other how I will feel when I wake up. Time for a new mattress, methinks.

Books: Scholastic sent me (twice) copies of an audio/book package of How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food. I worked more on the book with Jason, and am pleased with some of the poems.

Worked with an illustrator friend trying to re-kick-start his career with a picture book he tried a number of years ago. I still remembered it with great fondness and think that if he tries to recast it as a graphic novel (it has difficult World War II content), he might have a better shot. Lent him my copy of David Small’s graphic novel memoir Stitches.

Fun Stuff: Thursday was the annual WMIG Christmas party (Western Mass Illustrators Guild) at a local (to me) illustrator’s house. We had lots of food, drink, laughs, some artwork shown, and love. Nothing better.

Fun Guilty Pleasures: Catching up on America’s Next Top Model, watched “Up”.
