Just heard from my editor at Smithsonian Air & Space magazine. My feature about Mom, her time in the WASP, and the experience of growing up with a extraordinary woman for a parent is now set for the August 2010 issue of the magazine!
When we get closer to the publish date, I'll post a reminder (and, dear friends, you'll be hearing directly from me, too) so you can pick up your copy at your local news stand. :) It'll be my goal to see this issue sell out!!
And there will be web extras, too - those of you who have never heard my mom's voice will get a chance to hear her tell stories in her own voice.
Can it get any cooler?
Been a good day. A good creative day. Got loads of stuff done for the 9-5, worked to help a new friend make some (hopefully very fruitful) contacts, and got this good news on the article!
I'm going to ride this good feeling as long as I can.
Got an hour before the DVR kicks in for both Law & Order and Castle. Time to do the dishes, so I wake up to a shiny, clean sink. Trust me, there's some Zen in that.
