A Bird in the Bush, and Fruit on the Tree
It's autumn, friends. The frost is just about on the pumpkin, and the pumpkin has finally turned orange. The days grow shorter, and we draw nearer to the fire. October is a good month for ghost stories.
Of course, Willem and his friends are finding the days getting longer and warmer, and hopefully getting some good rain. He's here this week with another beautiful painting, and story to go with it.
Our planet continues to be winsome, even in the midst of fire, flood, and human insanity. Let us celebrate what we can, however we can, while we can.
Here are some of this week's highlights:
Read, comment, pass things around. Seriously: we appreciate all the retweets, shares, and likes on social media. Our readership is climbing. That's a good thing. Remember to wear your masks when out, and macs, too, if it's raining. And have a good week!
Quote of the Week: ...a vast and self-conscious story, a sort of seamless repetitious epic in which women married truckers and no-good gambles but stood by them until they got a divorce and the men sat in bars plotting seductions and how to get back home, and they came together hot as two-dollar pistols and parted in disgust and worried about the babies....There was nothing that was not banal, there was no phrase that was not a cliché...this endless soap opera of America's bottom dogs.
– Peter Straub, describing country music
