THE BOOK OF TICKS



NEW BOOK BEING PUBLISHED


Here's the cover layout for my new book
THE BOOK OF TICKS, 572 pages of
eight adventures featuring Phil Ticks.
Illustrated throughout by Seattle cartoonist
Aaron Gunderson, this book is a gem.
I've been planning this book for 25 years
and it will finally appear published in early
April. Stay tuned...

clyde poems


Two poems from Clyde Sanborn.
Been working on his manuscript,
met with Janet last weekend and
added more treasures.
By the way, took the dog for
a walk today and noticed
the skunk cabbage reappearing.

paterson padgett


I meant to mention that a couple weekends ago
we saw Jim Jarmusch's latest film PATERSON.
Great movie from one of my favorite directors.






It got me thinking of Ron Padgett too
and I sought out his book TED.
This is a fantastic read.

snow day

No school today because of the snow! (No work either!)
I made this rough looking yeti, but my son topped me
with this odd looking fellow (last photo).
I don't know how that proboscis stayed on, very
dignified.
