I could say a lot of things after the last few days. Instead, I will give you a puzzle and trust that you are still keeping it together. I am. I am? Yes. I am.
I hope you enjoy Grid Therapy’s 70th puzzle. You can’t know how grateful I am to be the most outlying of outlying outposts in the puzzleverse. I’m here in the world I want to belong to. And it’s fun to imagine I somehow now belong to it. That will never not be a feel-good. The connections I have made here give me more pleasure than I could ever have hoped for. Thank you. Better days ahead.
Also, I did not know it was going to appear when I posted the last puzzle here on Grid Therapy, but you can see my latest puzzle in a major publication still on the LA Times crossword page. It appeared on January 3rd, and it was a Sunday puzzle so it’s big and has lots of words and stuff. When is my next one? Probably not for a bit, because I haven’t submitted one recently. I am too laser-focused on you fine people. And also I have been lazy of late. There it is. Much love.

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!
