      Awesome. Share it, if you feel like it.
      Got your story and a real kick from reading it. Will forward better thinking when my brain is doing that.

  1. Thanks, Tom! I’m really glad you like it.
    Also, Joe and I want to come out for a visit sometime to play with your kids (and you and Rachel), if that can be arranged.

    Yeah this poem is effortless and graceful and generous… I really like its perspective. Joe thanks for reading that thing. It is sort of just a sketch / feeling / blind impulse propagated only minimally right now — I need to decide if I should a) clarify it so it might make sense to a reader other than me b) expand it by way of adding details and more characterization so as to make some sort of viable fiction what with suspense and things or, perhaps, c) turn it into a kids book for Sena with some handdrawn illustrations. Maybe all three? Speaking of Sena, Cheryl and Joe I think there is a facebook invitation in the works to Rachel’s B-d party at our house. Cheryl you should come and play with kids. They would love you.
