Half Way There!

A friend’s note reminded me I wanted to get the spruce trees pruned. The temperature was decent, a little windy, but the sun was out, and so I went for it. One chore done. The first of many such jobs to be done before spring.

The WWII game “Of War and Men” successfully launched yesterday on Kickstarter. What an exciting adventure! I am so hopeful for its success and I am so nervous, but so far so good.

Watching them launch their game has taught me a few things. Though books and games are definitely different, and have different markets, the rules of preparation and a good product are the same. Pursuing one’s passion is what life is all about.
