There’s been a lot of craziness on the internet the past couple days. Literally. But I want to point out that there is a tremendous amount of kindness and generosity out there too. SO much.

There seriously isn’t a day that goes by that someone doesn’t do something incredibly kind for me, and as hard as I try, it would be impossible to repay all that awesomeness.

Sometimes, I come across an author or a blogger (or both), who is just so lovely, inside and out, that I desperately wish I could give them a hug. Lindsay Cummings, the author of the amazing THE MURDER COMPLEX, generously posted this beautiful pic on her Facebook page—and I missed it until today. I didn’t miss her review of COMPULSION, though, and it literally made me tear up.

Isn’t she gorgeous? Have you read THE MURDER COMPLEX yet? Go get it. And follow her, because she’s one of the kindest people I’ve met, and that’s saying a lot. We all need more kindness, don’t we?

In Greek mythology, Pegasus (Πήγασος, Pégasos) was a winged horse sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa. He was the brother of Chrysaor, born at a single birthing. By extension, the term Pegasus is often used to refer to any winged horse. via

My accommodations for the night—at least one room of them. Loveliest school visit ever!
