SAINT LEMONADE is checked out from
the Bellingham Public Library and also
continues to be checked out at Wilson Library.
Good news, people are reading it. Thank you!
I'm currently working with Mike
to get our next big poetry collection
published next month.

Here’s a picture of Big Ole, the steam whistle
used in Bellingham during World War 2 as
an air raid siren. It currently resides on the roof
of the Steam Plant here at WWU. It’s still used
a few times a year. Very loud! My 1942 book
ends with this thing going off.

I just finished reading SO THE WIND
WON’T BLOW IT ALL AWAY, one of
my favorite Richard Brautigan books.
I’m amazed how he plays with time in
this and also his last novel, AN
UNFORTUNATE WOMAN. It would
be interesting to draw a timeline of those
stories. Speaking of time, this is the
date due card from SO THE WIND…
Libraries don’t often use these stamps
anymore (a lot of libraries are growing
more and more against paper)
but I love seeing these cards.
I’ve been reading Carl Sandburg’s
This page from Sandburg almost
skips ahead in time to echo

I typed my 1942 book all weekend, listening
to 1940s music. I'm up to 100 pages typed.
It's nearly there. Then I just need to proof it.
There's a beautiful map drawn for it too.
It will have the look of an old children's book.
I'm really excited about it. I actually miss
not having that notebook in my pocket writing it.
However, I do have an idea for a 1962 book that
I've been thinking about for ages, so that will
spring when it's ready.
