Feeling bright-eyed, confident, and arrogant doesn’t do this job…You are far better off being lost in your work and writing over your head. ~ Jim Harrison, The Ancient Minstrel Thanks for saying that, Saint Jim. They have given you your wings by now, right? So you can fly at last alongside those Chihuahuan ravens that mothered you here all those years? Well if not, that’s a sin. But I bet they have. Its not so much writing over my head right now as it is writing over my heart. Its damn near summer but the world feels bitterish cold. We’re rationing love. Yes, you got out at a good time, pal. I’m staying off to side. Its hard though, not to get caught up in the bullshiticus maximus. Pray for me, Jim. Say, when you’re walking with God in the cool drop a hint that a sign’d be nice, some cairn to stop us dead alive in our tracks, just a small stack of miracles.
