Been a little quiet lately. Well, I have had the week off annnnnnd it was my birthday on Thursday. Forty years old. So far, so good. Nothing to report, all systems nominal. 
I’m older than most of the protagonists in the stories I loved as a kid, those about whom I used to think: there’s no way I’ll ever get that old (Hell, I thought that about Spider-Man, once). But here I am, and strangely when I read them or watch them, the protagonists, they don’t seem alien to me. It’s like a magic trick. I can still understand them. 
So, here I am, and I’m lucky. I’ve got a great wife and kids and home and job. My writing and art is fulfilling and feels like it’s accomplishing something. There are a lot of people who dread getting old, but I can’t say I’m one of them. Things only seem to be getting better and better.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes guys. I’m taking it easy, and by that, I mean I’m working like mad on THE SENSE OF THE SLEIGHT OF HAND MAN, which, to me, is a great gift.

Here’s me and my girl Maya. She’s growing up very fast. Her current obsession is the X-Men, specifically Nightcrawler. She “teleports” around the house, wearing a blue jump rope around her waist as her “tail”. I seriously have done nothing to foster her obsession with the Avengers, Tolkien and X-Men, though I certainly am proud, and can almost always appeal to her geek-side to get her cooperation.

We’re all in a lot of trouble. Henry has skipped the whole crawling phase and has moved on to intermediate standing. Soon, he’ll be running, and then we’re all f*cked. Right now, he weighs about eight or nine pounds less than his sister (who is going to be 4 in August), so he’s catching up quick.
At this rate, he’ll be 19 feet tall and approximately 400 lbs. before his 16th birthday.
