I've long felt that if something good is going to happen something bad has to happen first or at the same time, or hot on the heels of the something good, like highs attract lows and vice versa to create the weather.

And so... my present troubles with my skin that have made it difficult to work or go outside without scaring children and other small animals -- our cat looks at me funny these days -- made me think something good might be on its way for me...
Then the day before yesterday this letter from a publisher in Australia turned up in my Inbox:
It's not in the bag yet but it's nice to have made a total stranger, at least one, laugh. I hope this doesn't mean my scars aren't going to heal. They are certainly taking their time about it, as if they, too, are waiting on the publisher.
