VERMONT / SMALL BUT GREAT / MUD SEASON

May 8, 2016

MUD SEASON REVIEW. VOL 2 is hot off the presses. Click for the online preview and BUY THE PRINT VERSION. Thanks for the hard work of the MSR STAFF (Rebecca, Natasha, Brett, Lee-Ann, Margaret, Rike (I am forgetting like 30 people) and the BURLINGTON WRITERS WORKSHOP for all they do to keep writing vibrant in Vermont.

Also THANK YOU for inviting me to the wonderful and jam packed reading May 7 at the HOTEL VERMONT with three amazing writers -- ALISON PRINE, SEAN PRENTISS , and RALPH CULVER.

My story "The True End to All Sad Times" appears in the print version here as well as a cool (my humble opinion) interview that editor and chief REBECCA STARKS whipped up. I'm honored. Thanks PETER BIELLO for being the originator and shepherd of so much of this.

LOOSE IN BOSTON

May 1, 2016

With Deborah and Dona (pedicart transit)

I hate driving in Boston -- have driven a million miles (this seems low) around the US, checked off all 50 states ages ago, and no trouble, but Boston gets me.

So the solution has been found.

Made it to Grub Gone Drag no problem.

Thanks Grubstreet and Muse and all my friends. Micheal Carolan, Peter Corbett and Dona Bolding especially.

Martha Graham Cracker is my new idol. I cannot walk in high heals like that, no way dance, no way climb on chairs, railings, etc. ( SEE PREVIOUS POST).

Just just just..........the sparkles in the eye shadow. The sequins.

No words.
