Welcome to puzzle #24 on Grid Therapy! Today’s puzzle is a 4.5/5 difficulty Free Association crossword. I hope it provides a fun and fair challenge for the veteran solvers among you. If you are a beginning- to intermediate-level solver, remember that there is no shame in looking things up or hitting ‘reveal word’ in Across Lite or on the Puzzle Me applet. It’s all about having fun and getting better.
Please share the puzzle and the site with your friends, and I’ll see you back here Sunday night.
I'm a husband, father, psychologist, musician, and crossword constructor living in Catonsville, MD. My puzzles have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and its syndicates, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Andrews McMeel Universal Syndicate, and crossword apps such as the Redstone Crossword Puzzle App on iOS and Google Play. All of that means I've been published in every newspaper in the United States and many others around the world. And now I've been published here at Grid Therapy, which allows me the amazing freedom to let who I am shine through. Maybe it will occasionally rub you the wrong way politically. I don't know. But in this space I get to not care. I hope you enjoy your time here on the crossword couch! I'd love to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions.
