What better to embrace the weekend?

What better to embrace the weekend, than with Shostakovich, String Quartet #6 in G. The passacaglia is beautiful.

Nickels and dimes, my friends, nickels and dimes

Amid the dry wall dust of demolition and uncut two-by-fours ready for framing, I calculated that I have lifted and carried more than a thousand pounds of building materials and debris. Not all at once, but one forty-pound load at a time. Poco a poco.

Afternoon work, windows open, listening to Joseph Arthur

Listening to “It takes a lot of time to live in the moment” by Joseph Arthur while working on an illustration comp for a book cover.

Thanks to all who joined the Village Ink Creative Writers Guild


Thanks to all who joined the Village Ink Creative Writers Guild at the open house tonight at the Graham Public Library!

Photos and summary to come later. I am exhausted, but I may have enough energy to finish one of the left over chocolate stout cupcakes.

Tonight: Village Ink Creative Writers Guild open house


The Village Ink Creative Writers Guild has an open house tonight at 6:30 p.m.

What to expect tonight? Expect puppy chow (yes, puppy chow) and cupcakes and maybe peanuts. Expect poetry and prose. Expect good stories by good writers. Expect to have a great time with local writers.

The Village Ink Creative Writers Guild authors plan to share recent works like “Animal Hospital” (children’s literature), “Disturbed” (fiction), “Popular Fiction” (fiction) “Genie-soul” (non-fiction) and selected poetry and prose.

The evening will conclude with a question and answer session for those who have questions about the guild and the craft of writing.

Hope to see you all there!
