Harvey’s Tales, books & other diversions

Harvey's Tales sign

I just dropped off my book at Harvey’s Tales to see if they’d be interested in carrying it. They’re going to read it and then let me know. By phone. Looks like I’ll have to answer it when it rings for the next cuppa weeks.

Cross your fingers. And your toes. Even if they don’t put it on their shelves, you should still stop in to peruse. Because support local. They got a coffee bar, too!

216 James Street in Geneva.

Does the path have a heart?

Does the path have a heart?

From the intro to Tao of Physics. When books start with such I know they’re gonna be good.

Follow the ❤️ peeps.

I am not good at this practice. Not only do I not just ask myself, I don’t even ask others the one question, I just assume they have already judged me negatively.

🤔 Something for me to work on…

It’s not always to change course, even more so in front of others but sometimes that’s what we got to do!

I read that as Taco of Physics. A painful reminder that I didn’t eat dinner and I should really go to sleep.

This is seriously one of my most favorite places in Monmouth, Illinois. Doesn’t feel like it was three years when we were last here but then again it does.

Hodge shant be shot

Some days I feel like running about town, shooting cats. But not Hodge. Hodge shan’t be shot.

PS- this is from Pale Fire’s intro.

Today is a day no cat shall be mistreated. My doggies (cats, to the uninitiated) are so friggin’ spoiled it’s unreal. They will walk on you and act abused if you push ‘em off. They expect to be scratched, fed, loved and made warm. Always warm, never cooled. They will from time to time whine about whatever it is they object to in kittyland, and I always coo and act like I care. If they are warm and full and brushed and scratched and their box is clean I am usually clueless as to what their complaint might be…like with the other women in my life, I just assume I’ve done something horrible and carry on.

Sam-I-Am is totally stalking and harrassing that guy.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 12, 2017 at 12:48 pm

I’ve always wondered who the unnamed character was. I always assumed it was No-I-Dont or Eggs-I-Wont.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 12, 2017 at 1:00 pm

I think he’s Mr. Knox from Fox in Socks.

That wasn’t intended to rhyme, but I like that it does.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 13, 2017 at 6:34 am

I thought so, too, but I think Mr. Knox has a collar. Maybe they’re cousins. 🤔

keamoose keamoose · Oct 13, 2017 at 7:26 am

Oh, I just saw that as he’s wearing different accessories.

Stephen and Owen King in Naperville 2017

Stephen and Owen King in Naperville 2017 1 - ticket Stephen and Owen King in Naperville 2017 2 - me selfie Stephen and Owen King in Naperville 2017 3 - big screen Stephen and Owen King in Naperville 2017 4 - Sleeping Beauties book Stephen and Owen King in Naperville 2017 5 - autographs

Me and the peeps got to go and hear him speak at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville.

My favorite part is when Owen told stories of how Stephen had him recording reading books onto tape so Stephen could listen to them.

How fun is that? Being eight years old and reading Dean Koontz books aloud for your dad for later.

the dawn of shallwoulds

tcr! · Sep 26, 2017 at 7:46 am

A couple of nights ago as I was falling asleep, the words were bumbling around in my head. As they do.

Whence I awoke in the dawn of shallwoulds, I tried to cast a line back to the half-sleeps.

As such that I caught, please enjoy some of my own bad poetry.

Embrace the fires inside.
Not the ones to burn the world down.

But the ones that will light the sky.
With the roar of a lion.

We are not our situation.
Put on a new imagination.

There’s no way that can be fixed.

That’s as much as I was able to remember but as I was drifting the bumbles seemed to go on for paragraphs.

Fucking Poetry. Yes, I said it, I meant it, I stole my mother’s credit.
Dig your own bad self!

When I’m drifting to sleep after drinking more than my fair share of coffee, words will surf in and out like the above. I sometimes think of writing more down but whenever I do I feel like I’m being pompously grand or overly wordy. Poetry is kinda artsy and not much like how I’ve been writing in the here and now.

But thanks for your kudos! Maybe I’ll at least write the down wordiness now and then. 😊
