how we rise when we're born like the ravens in the corn on their wings

Okay, this morning, I finished a hopefully better draft of "King Pole, Gallows Pole, Bottle Tree," and sent it to readers. We'll see what still doesn't work. I also made myself spaghetti squash and lamb chops for lunch (mmm) and washed dishes and cleaned the kitchen and swept the floor, which was getting a little desperate.

Now I'm going to go practice guitar until The Jeff and ashacat get here, so we can drive up to Northampton for Chris Smither at the Iron Horse, since the Nor'easter is forecast to hold off long enough that we don't have to cancel the trip.

In the meantime, here's something to read: a nice note on the official Amazon blog concerning Dust, which is not something I've ever gotten before.

Ooo. It says this blog is controversial. Better run right out and start a fight.

The previous blog entry over there provides a link to this lovely article: The Jonathan Lethem New York Diet, which made me laugh and laugh.

I'm not sure what I'm doing tomorrow, other than getting snowed in. I don't think I'm ready to start work on revising "Overkill" yet. Maybe if I am good, I can get some work done on "Your Collar" or "Smile," or something on Bone & Jewel Creatures. Also, I might try to finish reading Carmen Dog and start Wicked Lovely or Playing in the Dark.

Oh, and Chaz wants me to make bread pudding. And I want to make steam buns. Mung bean paste, I think.

That sounds like a pretty good Sunday at home, doesn't it?
