This morning I have received my first “Dry Gulch Project” submission, and I can tell you that it is fabulous. It’s funny, it’s short, and it introduces a fabulous new player to the ensemble. Get after it, Chroniclers, the competition will be stiff. And fun. Wouldn’t it be something if we could make a thing out of this? Jim Cornelius suggests, and I think rightly, that we should pull an illustrator on board. He has one in mind, and if we do our part, why couldn’t we make a book that resonates?
In other news, I spent two hours this afternoon with the horses, attending their various complaints, and working in a warm sunlight in the corrals. I don’t care who you are, if you haven’t curried a shedding horse in the bleak heat in the afternoon, and talked sweet nothings into their ears, you haven’t lived. And I don’t care if you’ve climbed Everest.
Things are shaping up to be busy, folks, and I promise nothing, but I will share this with you, because you need to see it, and perhaps better, to close your eyes and simply feel it. Enjoy, and I will be back tomorrow:
