Gratuitous Niece Picspam

Thank you, my friends, for all of your kind and sympathetic words. They've meant a great deal to me over these recent days.

FYI, my most recent "Looking Back on Genre History" segment is up on Episode 410 of StarShipSofa. It's the first of a two-part look into the science fictional and historical inspirations behind the Jedi of Star Wars. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

And now, a moment of joy, courtesy of my niece. Kaitlyn's favorite thing to do this season is dive into a pile of dry leaves.

That's why I love to observe young children. They know how to live in the moment and take joy in the simple things!

I make it a point to at least walk in the crunchy leaves every time I go out. People may think it's silly, but it helps keep me connected to that simple, pure joy that kids have. Who doesn't need a bit more joy in their life?

And who says joy is just for kids?
