Story for Grandchildren in Quarantine: The Land That Can’t Stand Still (1)

This story is written for children and grandchildren in quarantine, and it takes precedence on this site because, hey, isolation from COVID-19 takes precedence over everything today (begun April 5, 2020). Hope you enjoy it: The Land That Can't Stand Still 1. There it was again, the sound-cracking at the edge of sleep, the voices [...]

Poem, June 10, 2018: A Wink Will Do

  June 10, 2018: As I work on a new novel, not part of the Reesong series, and at the same time muse about the 3rd Reefsong book when I get to it, I hope this Fall—no complaints, having all this going on in my head is pure happiness—I also seem to be having an [...]

Farmer Meditation March 6, 2016

Sharing for today. Again, these are the Farmer's rough ideas, pretty much unedited and, more than that, not very thoroughly considered. His voice speaks and I capture it.

Farmer Meditation, Unedited, March 4, 2016

Drop the racket. Think the ball. So this is how I meant to use this page, to share these 4 AM thoughts as they come in raw form, before culling and cutting and polishing and upthinking them into book format. I was sitting, aware of the forward movement of consciousness. Rough, but fun [...]

This is the second blog in the Farmer blog series. In the first we reminded that the Farmer is a fictional character, if one who seems to speak with a resonant voice. I know there is a process that leads to the discovery of the things his character wants to say, I just can't tell [...]
