Today's puzzle is from David! Happy solving!
David says: "I'm excited to publish my first solo puzzle, having previously co-constructed one for the NYT with my daughter Sophia. In addition to referring me to 7xwords, Sophia taught me everything I know about crossword constructing; I suppose I can take credit for teaching her the alphabet 20 years or so earlier."
