Today is Thursday in the "Octave of Easter." Even though I have not yet wished you a Happy Easter, it's not too late. In the Church, we celebrate 50 days of Easter, a week of weeks plus one. So - Happy Easter! Watch for signs of new life wherever you find yourself.

In writing Eddie's Wake, I've noticed that the passage of time (October though June), especially the holidays, seem to correlate with events from the plot. It wasn't really anything I did intentionally, but it just seemed to work out that way. Without giving the plot away, I can say that Easter brings a promise of peace for Karl. In the end, he is satisfied not to have all the answers, knowing that the answers he does find will ultimately bring healing.
