  February 6       Two Powers       The river and the bridge; one force swift and roiling the other stolid and stoic, the first carries me away and the other carries me over.  For the love of liquid, current and life I have slipped in to the water and washed; my...

THE SLAM Love puts a damper on enjoying the game of Bridge. My partner and I could play competitively. Really, we are that good. But to please my tender-hearted Chris, we only spar with friends. I do enjoy our games. Once a week, we clean the house and make a luscious dessert. I check the...

In any society, a bridge is perhaps the most visible symbol of trust. And this kind of trust seldom comes into question. When most of us see a bridge, we assume it can handle the cars, trains, and gale-force winds bearing down on it. Lately, though, people in my neck of the woods realize that they...

   As with my short story "The Jenny" (see previous blog) this situation takes us into another dimension experiencing what happens to two individuals who tried to get away after robbing a Trust Company. They got away all right but not when and where they expected. As you read, I'm sure...

I don't know why I thought that outsourcing would skip the world of ideas, but apparently American editorial services and reportage are about to go the way of the U.S. manufacturing and auto industries. Out the window. It's an open secret that U.S. publishers and newspapers have been between a rock...

I recently learned that the terrific ZZ Packer, who is the editor of New Stories from the South: Best of 2008 from Algonquin Books, has chosen my story "Bridge of Sighs" for inclusion in the volume, which is scheduled for August publication. The story appeared in the summer 2007 issue of...
