My fiber optic Virgin.Posted: July 27, 2014
My study has a new patroness: a fiber optic Virgin of Guadalupe! It’s a birthday present from my sister Julie. I put her in the fireplace, to watch over my city of blocks, which are just blocks I play with whenever I’m stuck or need to figure something out in 3-D. And it’s all the more apropos for Novel #2, which concerns the Maya, who revered the goddess of healing Ix Chel, of whom, let’s be honest, the Virgin of Guadalupe is a direct reincarnation.
I think this is the beginning of a shrine.
