I think my weeks of late nights are catching up with me. I woke up again feeling sick to my stomach and stayed home from work a few hours to let it settle down. argh If I hadn't felt obligated to come into work, I think I could have spent the entire day in bed.
Happy-making: I'm thrilled that one of my brother's photographs has been chosen by the photography editor of the new ezine that I'm on the staff of for the first issue.
Sad-making: A couple of days ago, a club member had sent me a flyer for the child of a friend of hers who was kidnapped, and today she sent me the news that the child has been found. The mother is Swedish, and the father is American and a resident of Sweden. After many court appearances in Sweden, the father was given special permission to take the boy to the U.S. on holiday to San Francisco, where the father’s family resides. Mia’s son never came back and Sweden issued a child abduction warrant for the father. Both Interpol Sweden and the San Francisco DA’s office were actively working the case. Now the father is in custody and the mother is flying to the U.S. to collect her 5-year-old son. All I can think of is how confused and alone that little boy must feel.
