Moving Dates and Murmuration

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to push back the publishing date for Intangible to January. For many reasons, one of which is that it’s better for my book to come out at the beginning of a year than it is at the end of the year. If I were to put it out in December, by January it’s last year’s book. So, you know, I’d rather have it be “this year’s” book for longer than a month. This will also give me enough time to (possibly) have the paperback release at the same time as the ebook. Or at least, not too long after.

If you haven’t come across this already (and even if you have, because it’s so cool you should see it multiple times) you have got to watch this video of Murmuration, which is a group of thousands of starlings looking for a place to roost for the night. They swirl back and forth and all around, all wanting to stay together (safety in numbers), with no one wanting to be on the outside or the first to land. The visual effect of this is stunning. Prepare to be amazed. (Coolness begins around 0:24 mark.)

Thanks to Andy for the link.

Have a great day, everyone!

      Yes! I had never read that poem before, but he captures it perfectly. They do move like the woven fabric of a scarf billowing in the wind. Thanks for sharing that.
