August Round-Up

Xina Uhl is working on the second of her Icebound stories, a quirky collection following the inhabitants of the frozen edges of the earth. These stories take place in a past much like that which occurred in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with characters and settings just a little bit … unexpected. (The […]

January 2015 Round Up

Happy New Year! Xina Uhl has been hard at work on a number of projects. She turned in her book “The Civil Rights Act of 1964” (children’s nonfiction), and finished a short story “Whiter Passages” – an Antarctic romance. She’s now working on the next volume in the Icebound series called “All Mouth and No […]

Dancing in Antarctica (Part III)

The best vacations never leave you. The sights, the sounds, and the emotions stay with you forever, laying dormant in your mind until they rise to the surface with even the slightest of urgings. From glancing at a photograph or hearing a penguin honk on t.v. or listening to a song, it can take only […]

Dancing in Antarctica (Part II)

Our first landfall on the Antarctic Peninsula was later the same morning as my first time on the ship’s treadmill.  As I walked back to my cabin, exhilarated for the first time in days, I didn’t think I could feel more light-hearted than I had a few minutes earlier. But when the door closed behind […]

Dancing in Antarctica (Part I)

It’s a bit tricky to jog on a treadmill on the deck of a moving ship.  The pitch, the roll, your stride, your rhythm. You have to anticipate, to compensate as your foot lands short when the deck pitches upward, or extend your stride when the ship pitches down into the troughs. I’m not talking […]

Healing Through Horror

She was running after me as fast as her little legs would carry her. She ran and she ran, but she was old and tired. She couldn’t keep up with me as the airplane carried me away. She faded into the distance, a tiny animal swallowed by the blackness of my mind. I don’t know […]
