Dear Stephen,

Thank you so much for both reading & for your kind words!

Minneapolis is one of my favorite cities! I love the combo of old stone churches & glass skyscrapers next to each other, love the sky walks & weather. See, while anything & a tanning salon may sound weird to anyone (just because it actually is weird), I’ve lived in Iowa for 6 years. I GET it. It’s to prevent people (like my husband) from killing themselves between October & March. Where is my blizzard/rain booth in the summer in Colorado? Maybe I should invent & patten it for the tiny minority.

I have a theory (based on no evidence whatsoever) that while people with SAD turn inward, people with NSAD, turn outward, & there you find most of your serial killers. Since I would have to actually conduct studies & do research & that would require w-o-r-k on my part, I’ll stick to half-backed theories, feelings & wild speculations. But I digress.

Welcome to Colorado!
