movie time

Finally got my son to watch one of
my favorite movies, Down By Law
(1986). Still remember seeing this
one at the Grand Illusion movie
theater. I miss those little theaters
with the curtains that open as the
lights dim.

3 Heaven Crayons

Just got 3 copies of Heaven Crayon book!
They look great! And many thanks to the
15 people who bought copies. That's double
digit sales! This summer is a good time to
read, hope you enjoy.

King Telephone

I'm always excited for the next new
Stephen King book. Got his latest from
the library (curbside pickup: in these
weird times, I especially miss perusing
the library) and read it quick as can be.
Noticed that TWICE he mentioned a
tin can telephone in his book. The
powers that move among muses are
mysterious indeed.

Movie Time

Watched Martin Scorcese's
Italianamerican (1974).
It's great! Perfect with our
spaghetti dinner. I sure miss
this era of people. Reminds
me of talking with my
grandparents way back when.

more excitement

What a big relief to get Heaven Crayon
published! It's available for readers adrift
on Captain Nemo's submarine. To be
delivered by the nearest pelican.
Good Deed Rain has more excitement
planned too:
#1 A new novel (the sequel to The Robotic
Age) that is all done: I'm just waiting for
the illustrations.
#2 Another finished new novel that also
needs a few illustration. (If I have to I'll
do the drawings, but would prefer some
amazing artist out there).
#3 I'm in the midst of writing a "Scholastic
Books" type children's book (reminiscent
of The Lake Walker and Homeless Sutra).
This one sure if fun to write! A paperboy
ghost story. Each day is like a radio show
telling me what to write. Carry on!

The Art of Big Little Books

Catching a phrase from the text
and drawing a page for it.


I keep listening over and over
to the new Bob Dylan record.
As usual, he is onto it and into
it and telling it like it is

route 66

My new favorite episode of Route 66
is "How Much a Pound is Albatross?"
In 1962 television, she was talking
about Zen Buddhism and she's way
way way ahead of everyone else.
(And jeeze, seeing that picture of
President Kennedy on the police
station wall...murder most foul.)

Thanks, Carl
