The next time you are at the Albany International Airport and checking in for a flight, look to your right to see this new large-scale work.
According to the Art and Culture Program at the Albany Airport:
The geometric patterns in this composition are based upon paper airplanes folded by employees throughout Albany International Airport who were invited to contribute to this project. After collecting the planes, the artist unfolded them and then traced their creases into this fifteen-part sequence. The white lines on varying shades of blue ground echo the contrails of jets as they cross the sky, or blueprint renderings for simple, elegant flying machines
A public reception for the current exhibition, Patterns of Engagement, will be Friday, Jan. 17, at 5:30pm, featuring work by the artists Tasha Depp, Adam Frelin, Rich Garrison, Jack Magai, Laini Nemett, Chris St. Cyr, Chris Victor, and Deborah Zlotsky.
It seemed like a good idea to bring your attention to this piece of writing that Mark Twain wrote in response to the U.S. military intervention against the freedom fighters of the Philippines. It wasn’t published until long after he died. Now in the public domain, “The War Prayer” continues to resonate more than a hundred years after it was written. Also included below is a 2007 dramatization.
Just finished my first winter run outdoors in forever.
Hope you have a great 2020!
Should I even try to go outside today?

So I hit 50,161 words a few minutes ago. Despite what the certificate above suggests, I know the novel isn’t done. In fact, I just stopped in the middle of a scene because it is getting late. I’ve been busy writing the past few weeks, so haven’t been keeping up with blogging about the writing. But this feels good.
Still, I think I have about another 30,000 words to go until this draft is done, so maybe December will be National Novel Draft Completion Month, and then next few months after that will be all about the revision.
Thanks for reading along!

Not much to say. I may have crossed a threshold, and figured something out.
