Last week, there was turmoil. A family member had a very dramatic discovery of diabetes, followed closely with heart surgery and huge amounts of anxiety as we added new things daily. Rough week, but all is well — better than ever, in fact — just huge stress.
As a reward for getting through last week successfully, life has agreed to schedule my short story, The Heart’s Engine, for publication today.
You have to admire the Master Scheduler’s sense of what is appropriate timing; my story of a steampunk heart surgeon publishes right after Ma needed one.
