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

MANHATTAN BEACH: A Poem by Joe Perrone Jr.

   MANHATTAN BEACHBy Joe Perrone, Jr.      I first saw Manhattan Beach as a youth,With its old couples strolling the sand,     Smiling faces advertising their love.I watched as young mermaids,     Waded bravely into the water,Wearing oversized tee shirts turned inside out,     To hide the names of high schools,That everyone knew they went to, anyway.      In the public lockers, men with brown faces,Flashed gap-toothed smiles,     And pushed their way beneath my shower,While miniature replicas…See More

Joe, you seem to have some Italian background.  I was born surrounded by father's Italian family in Philadelphia, and have some memory of the generosity, and wish I had more. My closest relative there died 2 years ago.  Soon I may be able to outline my beginning to use a recording microphone and the Audacity Software. So far I haven't developed this enough and my best bet for the final steps of recording will be a studio in Bristol, VA. A friend at a radio station introduced me to the equipment there.

 

Nevertheless, the Audacity software is excellent. Call me and I can show you how I use it for practice at my home or ask around where you live.
