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

John,
I think I got the message about the doctor being wrong, but then the doctor has been wrong so many times, I'm not sure. Why don't you come over to the "Folklore" group and post. Right now, we are talking about spring houses and wells and city water. I'm sure you know something about that. Go down to the last comment which is about 304 and jump in. I miss your posts because they are some place else.

John,
I got your comment, but it was stuck up in the middle of the "Folklkore" group.
I guess I am missing some of your posts. If you write me back, go to the "Folklore"
group and post on the end. If that don't work, I'll invite you to join us again.

John,
Where is your comments about fire drawing? I can't find it. It made me think of a memorable passage in Harry Crews' autobiography where he describes his experience with a fire-drawer after he was severely burned. Of course, there are blood-stoppers, too.
Gary
