MidSouthCon, Hypericon, and The Toronto Star

I'm off to MidSouthCon 24! I'll be back on Sunday.

Also, I want to give a shout-out to Hypericon 2, which is gearing up for a great time in June.

I am in love with

Last, there is a new article in The Toronto Star about the Lord of the Rings musical (and I am quoted): "Fans on Pins and Needles: Putting revered tale to music sparks trepidation as clan plans to gather in Toronto this July."

My quote for the day:

Written in Early Spring
William Wordsworth

I heard a thousand blended notes
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.

To her fair works did Nature link
The human soul that through me ran;
And much it grieved my heart to think
What Man has made of Man.

Through primrose tufts, in that sweet bower,
The periwinkle trail'd its wreaths;
And 'tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

The birds around me hopp'd and play'd,
Their thoughts I cannot measure,—
But the least motion which they made
It seem'd a thrill of pleasure.

The budding twigs spread out their fan
To catch the breezy air;
And I must think, do all I can,
That there was pleasure there.

If this belief from heaven be sent,
If such be Nature's holy plan,
Have I not reason to lament
What Man has made of Man?
