I have an easy puzzle for you this week. I know I have said this in different ways before, but I continue to be amazed by how much working at home has left me with less free time. I’ve read articles which suggest I’m not alone in feeling this way, but crossword constructing has been relegated to a smaller and smaller slice of my time these days. I’m not gonna lie. Spending time playing Zelda and Animal Crossing on our Nintendo Switch with my kids has eaten into a significant slice of my free time. I’m not proud of it, but that’s just the way it is. But, it has actually been a wonderful way to grease the wheels of conversation with these teenagers I live with.
I hope this gives you a bit of enjoyment in whatever free time you find yourself looking to fill. I’ll be back with more. Can’t promise when. I thank all of you in the crossword community for being there as an affirmation of goodness in the world!
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, the American Values Club Crossword, 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 freedom to let who I am shine through. I hope you enjoy your time here on the crossword couch! I'd love to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions. If you're interested in having a custom crossword puzzle created for your event or organization, email me at drtrent (at) gmail.com.
