"But teach him how to kill...then..."

Mostly sunny today, and the sun is warm, but the high will only be 61˚F or so.

The tree has been saved.

And yesterday I sent the ms. for Dear Sweet Filthy World off to Subterranean Press. However, I forgot to send the ms. for the chapbook, The Aubergine Alphabet, and I should do that today. Part of me wants to just go to the zoo.

I desperately need an idea for Sirenia Digest #123 (April 2015).

I'm reading the new memoir from the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology (Mem. 15), Anatomy of the Dodo (Raphus cucullatus L., 1758): An Osteological Study of the Thirioux Specimens.

We saw a pretty cool Irish horror film last night, The Hallow, directed by Corin Hardy. Faerie and body horror in one film, which proves to be an excellent combination. Faerie as a parasitic fungus. See it.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

I am delighted to hear about the tree.

Send the manuscript for The Aubergine Alphabet and then go to the zoo?

the tree has been saved...
for unnumbered moments of recognition and unrecognized indifference
untold self expression of solitude in blissful continuance
silently giving back in all forms
unspoken freedom to be

Yay for saving the tree and for delivering the DSFW manuscript.
Hope you can make it to the zoo.

SO happy for your tree.

I wish there had been a bit more of the fungus-dog in The Hallow! I suspect they ran out of budget for him though. Such a visually striking movie regardless - I loved all of the lingering shots of natural textures. The iron bars over the window were a great ominous touch, too.
