Had a disappointing trip to the university bookstore. I was hoping to leave these 4 books for the Faculty/Staff shelf. The manager told me they are discontinuing that space. There doesn’t seem to be any home for my books—where are the interesting stores? Do I need to get a donkey cart and peddle them in another enlightened century? I couldn’t help but laugh a little, carrying the books back outdoors, I know these are great and there are so many more to share, and I know people will enjoy them one day.

I'm working on getting the next book ready for publication, due Thanksgiving. This one will be an illustrated collection of short stories. Here's a sneak preview at a page spread for Chapter 9. This story came to me after I was walking downtown and saw a sign for a store that said they serve everyone ages 0-120.

Now that A Red Leaf Boat and Forest and Field are being published on Halloween, I’m busy with 4 more books on the way! I’m getting a new book of short stories ready for Thanksgiving. I’m also working on editing two new novels, and currently writing a third. Sneak preview: these novels feature Neptune, Mars and Paris, and a family of weasels. Who needs Paramount Pictures anymore when you’ve got these in your future!

This morning, walking the dog in the wood, I met an old woman and old man who were stopped where the path branched into two. They told me they weren't sure which way to go. I said, "Well, you know what the scarecrow said in the Wizard of Oz?" I figured they'd seen it when this town had big beautiful movie theatres with curtain screens. I swung one arm, "You could go that way..." then swung my other arm, "Of course that way is nice too." That's when their dog barked at me.
