For Mother’s day, I received a custom made gift: an eyeglass chain with charms that had to do with Abyss & Apex Magazine. (Thanks, Christine and Maggie!) There’s a Chinese dragon charm, a Western dragon, a book, an alien, an inkwell with a plumy quill, a unicorn, a fairy, and a little hourglass with sand that glows in the dark.
I’m not sure if the hourglass stands for time travel or how I’m always so busy, trying to shoehorn two lifetimes into one. But then, I’ve mellowed with age. It used to be three lifetimes I was juggling at once.
