SLY ~







SLY

 


By truck we were
 

Heading home the same
 

Time we saw fox heading
 

Home by the side of the road
 

Muddy legs like quick
 

Moving boots he made
 

His way and I swear
 

We looked at him
 

And he looked at us
 

And the Earth was whole

Hi, Bob,

This one made me stop in my tracks, breathe out as deeply as in.

So, can I slyly infer that The Woodcutter Talks might be available?

Stay close,

Mike

Hi Donna and Mike,

Donna, as you know, I breathe with you.

Mike, the book (tracking tells us) is this minute being loaded into the UPS truck in Brattleboro after sitting too long in some way station in Massachusetts. That's the system, let it work. We will have cartons here this evening and a grand opening of two and a cat watching.

It turns out J.D. and Lisa will be with us Sunday; Carson and Layla possibly on Saturday, so a little book celebration can occur. Announcement forthcoming.

"Sly" slips in near the end of the book.

John Bradley's new book is now at the printer. To be followed by Malcomlm Ritchie's big memoir. The elves say with a smile, they have been working their fingers to the bone.

all's well to you both!
Bob
