with human affairs. But Sketch our rat terrier
doesn't disgust me and the butterflies that returned
to our bush this summer don't disgust me, nor
the birds at the feeders off our deck. D. H. Lawrence
said all this more eloquently than I can in a poem
about living with animals, and I get some comfort
that my disgust is not a personal hallucination.
Sartre said hell is other people, which I believe
is true, but heaven is too. The obvious lesson
is be careful who you hang with. Very careful.

|Mayb the shock of the world is|
how much good will is found
in the deeds of those who refuse
to embrace the inevitable decline
of the planet. As if on the deck
of the Titanic an old man drops
his wallet and a young boy, seeing

and a sinking ship is just a sinking ship.

and I have to turn away and distract myself
and in this way one day follows the next
I thought were better times, before the trigger
we were a mistake from the beginning in
a realization offering no relief whatever
cooking reading music

a new Overdrive. to bring out
Does it get any better than this?

So maybe I can get a plan for downsizing this week. Overdue.
And a small start on the new Overdrive stories. Three out already! The first promo has resulted in over 1100 downloads with two (slow?) days to go. I used to spread the 5 free days out, one day at a time, but a marketing book convinced me it's better to do all five at once in the beginning and get the freebies over with. So that's what I'm doing. In fact, I am following "advice" on all the marketing strategies this summer. Hoping it works.
