I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

David Donovan replied to G.W. NEWTON's discussion A BUNCH OF WIREGRASS
"An interesting book of individual tales of childhood in the Wiregrass region of south Georgia.  It gives a real sense of what a white childhood was like in a farming community during the 1930's and 1940s."

I'm taking time checking out the site, thanks for leading me to it, you sounded so excited about your experience with this blogging. Your reading preference is exactly like mine. Genealogy and history, as well as small town writings.

I'm really impressed by the collection of Bonnie's letters. Have you told the Union County Historical Society about them?
