I think of this as Figgy's Buddha expression: Cat of Contentment Attains Enlightenment. But our friend Jim looked at the photo and said, "It looks to me like he's hatching such evil plots that if you knew about them, your hair would curl."
SF/fantasy writer. English professor. Episcopalian. Licensed lay preacher. Hospital volunteer offering spiritual care in the ER. Spinner, weaver, knitter.
And a few other things, less easily labeled. The title of this blog is a phrase John Clute used to describe the plots of my first two novels. It both amused and annoyed me, and I finally decided to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Would you prefer rickety contrivances of doing bad?
