The extreme weather continues to effect us here on the US east coast.
We experienced direct hits from the super storm Sandy and followed days later by winter storm Athena - both storms first of their kind on record. This follows other extremes and records here in the last year. Its hard to endure the sight of what are now twenty fully mature large trees downed on our property alone since we moved in six years ago.
I managed to take a few photographs locally after roads were cleared, they can be seen on the website here: http://www.colinandrews.net/Photos-Wildlife.html
My new book, being written now with Synthia, is totally relevant to the period we are living and as the climate and social changes escalate it becomes more so. The book is called 'The Edge of Reality' and will be published during 2013. The writing has been very hard during a year of serious health issues and losses in both my families in the UK and USA and further disrupted by these weather events but it remains top priority to complete.
I thank sincerely the wonderful emails Ive received by many regular visitors, whom I consider friends and I know that you are missing the regular website updates on the subjects we share interest and concerns in.
We will be back on track as soon as the book is submitted to Career Press.
For anyone who feels like taking a short break from a heavy year to join like minds on the 2012 Mayan Cruise next month, the organisers tell me that places are still available. No doubt Synthia and I will be still writing while on board but we will be there. I will make a presentation on board during the return voyage from the Yucatan. While in many ways it seems inappropriate to be relaxing during such drastic times, there is great value though in joining with like minds and experiencing the Mayan land during the pivotal period that they foresaw.
All current updates, new wildlife photos, Sandy and Athena and the details on the Cruise, can be found on the website.http://www.colinandrews.net/New-Postings-Colin-Andrews.html
