Tommy, I'm sure you are busy crafting it in your workshop, but it has been well more than a fortnight since your last fortnightly firmament. Just sayin'.

Tom Nissley

True, sadly true. I have come to realize that doing a Firmament every two weeks is just not sustainable, at least when you make them into the epics that I can't help but doing, but I'm sorta stuck with the name. I'm just hoping that people (or at least Americans) forget what "fortnight" means. I'm afraid that Wimbledon has singlehandedly kept it alive, though.

I do have a couple in the works, though: I promise one before the holiday and one soon after.

It is kind of your Page Six, which is never actually on page 6.
