I have been surprised by two developments this Spring semester 2010 that have greatly added to my regular teaching responsibilities. As such I have been quite behind in my own main blog Rattus Scribus, and criminally negligent of Rattus' Tales, let alone visiting and commenting on the blogs of dear friends. But I am nearly done with a fully developed short story that I will be posting on Rattus Scribus and Rattus' Tales, and possibly also on a blog called Nowhere begun by our dear friend The Duchess. My short story will give readers an in depth look at Rattus Scribus and the circumstances of his first encounter with Spinoza, a hedgehog who subsequently becomes a life long friend. A highlight is that my wife Anita of Castles Crowns and Cottages (and other blogs) will be contributing her wonderfully humorous drawings to accompany the story.
Your devoted scribe,
