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.

  • I found this ribbon message tied to a redwood tree in Arcata, California. A welcome sentiment these days: words of love 💜🌲

  • This huge, beautiful Buddha statue was completely unexpected as we drove through the tiny, rural town of Mims, Florida.  We'd just returned from an airboat tour through a swamp peppered with alligators. A Buddhist monastery was the last thing we expected to see tucked away behind the trees.

  • This little devil is hereby dubbed "Murder Kitty" for all the helpless creatures he's been dragging into the house lately. Nothing like a bird or gopher running under the couch to help me concentrate on writing articles.  Guess who's getting a collar with a bell tonight? .

  • Spotted this beautiful sculpture By Cynthia Siegel at Sierra Azul gardens in Watsonville, CA.  It's actually made of clay, not wood.  I love surprise art in unexpected places.  The whole garden was full of gorgeous succulents, sprawling trees, and birds that watched our every move. .

  • From last week as I was travelling to a wedding.  The wedding had: a) fairies, b) ferrets dressed in little bride and groom outfits, carrying rings, c) ocelots, parrots, and snakes, and d) temples to Egyptian goddesses.  I kid you not.  This happened. Geyserville, CA was gorgeous.
