I am floating in the void with a sign: The Beginning is Nigh! I would probably say that out loud, if there was anyone around to hear it. But there isn’t. So I stick with the sign. Still, I’m sure it’s coming. Something. I’ve had a series of prophetic migraines.
There is no one here to call me crazy or tell me not to loiter in front of their frozen yogurt stand. If there were, they would probably say, “What makes you think anything will change? Nothing ever has before.”

Birthin’ Babies kindly spoiled the graphic apron, which made everyone at our needlepoint smile, but not lactate. (more…)

As you may have heard, my thickset four-year-old Greta has fallen into the snake pit that I dug in my backyard and subsequently filled with snakes, so please contribute to this GoFundMe so that we may rescue her promptly. There are many types of snakes in the pit, including copperheads, rattlers, and the very venomous python. I do not know much more about the snakes. There are many kinds, and on summer nights when you gaze into the pit whilst the sun descends beyond the horizon, they glow with brilliant colors. (more…)
