  1. The moment really well captured, Kirsten. I know that feeling. Congratulations on the commendation!

  2. Thank you, Cara!
    I've been wanting to share this one for a while but had to wait for the anthology to come out, which was launched 5 Nov.

  3. Thank you, Margaret. I've actually done one of my collage-style haiga for this one. Must get around to scanning those some day!

  4. Wonderful words... and it is wonderful that they will appear in Ice Driver.

  5. Thank you, Teri.
    I love that name - Ice Diver. I received my copy a few days ago but haven't had a chance to have a good look over it yet.
