A Myth Much Prettier than Home (published in Microw Summer 2012)

Throwback from 2012:

Microw, a flash fiction supplement to Full of Crow Press and Distribution, published one of my stories.  Following the summer theme of “Home,” the story is titled “A Myth Much Prettier than Home” and peeks into the creation of the Sole Portal Builder in Marine Territory as he whips up a portal to home for Monsieur Atticus … but perhaps a “home” that can never be re-experienced.  Check it out:  http://www.fullofcrow.com/contentfiles/MICROW7Summer2012.pdf.

I’m embarrassed to have forgotten the musical inspiration for this piece.  I’m currently swimming in beautiful tunes by Tamaryn, Saint LouLou, and Foreign Cinema, so I’ll publish some new pieces soon.

Aside: a crow flew into our house recently and flew around, terrified, until D picked it up and took it outside where it pretended to be dead for a few moments, then flew away furiously.  That was the Summer Solstice.  Very symbolic, don’t you think?  I also think the crow gave our indoor cats fleas, but nevermind.  Nature is beautiful, though not always ….convenient.

  • My rule: Get published, get chocolate.  My new article about breaking big art projects into steps is in the Polymer Arts Magazine. Hurray for motivation!

  • There is no better place for creative inspiration than Big Sur ... even when it's closed off by washed out bridges and landslides. We hiked the bypass trail to get around the collapsed bridge and had the amazing experience of walking down California's Highway 1 with basically no traffic!  Lunch at #Nepenthe, a walk to the #HenryMillerMemorialLibrary, and all these gorgeous views.  It was like going back in time.

  • Beach hut for pixies created by some thoughtful soul on Seabright beach.

  • Like an alcohol-infused salad: bell pepper/cilantro gin & tonic at Front and Cooper. Tasty, and arguably (very arguably) healthy.

  • I love fog and sun mornings along the coast. Everything always feels slighty spooky and beautiful.

  • We got made a wrong turn on the way to San Gregorio and found a gorgeous fairytale forest hidden off a secluded mountain road. Serendipity at its finest! We even found a swimming hole. Lately I've learned that when you get lost, keep on going because you're probably on your way to something splendid.
