Do you ever send fan mail? I have sent two letters this year to authors whose work I admire.
PS I did not blur the address on the envelope because he made it public on his blog.
A mother black bear gives birth to one to four cubs in the winter, and they will emerge together from den in April or May. Curbs start practicing climbing trees as soon as they are strong enough, which is important because they are not fast enough to outrun predators. Black bears are most active at dawn and dusk, but can sometimes be seen mid-day. Look for them in open spaces within or near forested areas.

|The Jury Holdout, 1959|
By Norman Rockwell
Rockwell might have gotten the idea for his February 14, 1959, cover from a movie released two years earlier.
In 12 Angry Men, Henry Fonda played a dissenting juror who eventually persuaded the other 11 men on a jury to vote with him. As in the movie, this deliberation has taken hours, indicated by the crumpled ballots on the floor and the cloud of smoke overhead.
What made this cover more than just a reprise of the movie is that Rockwell’s holdout is a strong-minded woman, holding fast to her principles, at a time when women jurors were still a rarity in some states, and not permitted in some others.(Text taken form here.)
