"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"

Snow is coming, or so they say. Could be one to three inches by morning.

And I have the opening scene to the third issue of Alabaster: The Good, the Bad, and the Bird in my head. Finally. So, I suppose I'll be writing today.

I didn't sleep enough, which is mostly my own damn fault. I did, however, at least get out of the House yesterday. Only the third time since we returned from DC. We crossed the river (blue-grey, almost black, waiting to freeze), dodged annoying drivers, and spent an hour or so at Paper Nautilus, where we still have about $500 in credit, thanks to last springs mighty book purge. Goddamn, but I love that place. Fuck you, Kindle. I'll keep my must old bookstores and "inconvenient" hardbacks. Yesterday we spent some of the credit, and I came away with:

1. Harm's Way by Joel-Peter Witkin (beautiful)
2. Close-Up on Sunset Boulevard by Sam Staggs
3. All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy
4. Your Inner Fish by Neil Shubun

Afterwards, we went to Eastside Market for a pecan pie and various other things. We made it home before dark.

Please have a look at the new eBay auctions. These include a copy of the Spanish edition of The Drowning Girl (La Joven Ahogada), with Santiago Caruso's beautiful cover. Thank you.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

    Not a bad day. The sun came back, and it got very warm. We had a high of 91˚F. At one point I checked the heat index, and it was 98˚F. I only slept…

    Another cloudy, stormy day. Another day of miserable weather, and we only made it to 76˚F. I tried to work, but I got very little done. I do not…
