This Week's Writing 10/21/23
Scorsese, Langston Hughes, the 1973 peace treaty, and more.
The blog is coming to the magnificent end of its first year (much like the magnificent tail of the kitty.) I’ve almost got 5000 subscribers; hoping to hit that before the 30th, which will be the official anniversary (more or less.) Consider sharing if you’d like to help me reach this arbitrary goal!
In the meantime, here’s what I wrote this week.

My keyboard is a lizard that bites.

My keyboard is rain, is rain, is rain.

I get so much done.
Until I don’t.
