Gently Read Dough

Hey, mista, have you got a dolla? Just one? So there's this cool site that does book reviews, Gently Read Literature, and they're trying to raise some dough to, gasp, pay their reviewers! I know, I know. You can go here to get the fundraising details, or here to read reviews, or here to see a review I wrote for doggone free! Okay. You've probably already seen that last one, but you get the point, no?

American Lager

(Been fussing with this for a while. Maybe it's done. Maybe not.)

It’s a casualty of the mind
To think death before sunshine

The Amish horses, for instance,
Aren’t dead in the fields

They’re dreaming

I could have been a Budweiser

Big Wonderful News!

Big Wonderful Press has accepted my chapbook The Afterlife is a Dry County for publication! Okay, so if I've seen your face, this isn't news. But it's news here and I'm quite pleased to be able to say so. I like them like them. You'll be the first to know once it's available. After me.

You may now return to your previously scheduled life.

Sunsets & Toy Guns

These last couple of weeks of fall have been out of this world.

If you can't be happy now...

Mary's first auction was a junky one, but she did score this toy gun.

Dangerous woman.
Later, everyone was out at Silver Beach. Again.

I guess there's a little sadness in the knowing the colors won't remain.

I know people, several of them, who are thinking of blizzards. I'll give the blizzard its due.
When it's time. Not quite yet, please.

A Moment of Inter|Rupture

I have a poem up at interrupture, (blogger refuses to let me format the name correctly) which is gorgeous and full of great works all around. Read, read, read!

And then, oh, yes, go out and play. This weather is amazing and, as everyone is saying, it won't last. The snakes know it, too. I keep tripping over them in the woods.
