Re: Shades of a Turquoise Moon

So sorry Sasha that trouble makers stopped your local powwow. In Natchez, there has been no trouble from anyone. Itis a peaceful congregation of Native and non-native people. It was a kind of New Year for me. It was one of the few area powwows that didn't forbid picture taking. So I have an extensiv...

Thanks, Saw. This was a personal story based on my late wife and I. We went to the powwow every year. Glad you enjoyed it.

Shades of a Turquoise Moon

Shades of a Turquoise Moon They cross into the Powwow zone where buttered blue corn on the cob melts on the tongue like the pretzels whose buttery softness they lick at the magnolia state fair in June when one is all they can afford. John shadows Marsha beyond the Great Sun’s mound to an abandoned m...

Re: Brain Storm

Sasha, first it sounds to this layman like you made an amazing recovery. Peripheral vision loss but mobility regained. Also comforting is your dog’s love. You really took me into your experience like I was there going through it. At first I was hoping this was fiction. But quickly I realized it was ...

Re: Wrestling in the Metropolitan

Glad you read this when you did because the final edit wasn’t completed until yesterday. There were quite a few glitches until then. I thank you for your keen observations and especially for your appreciation of the screenplay potential here. Also grateful for your pointer about Kevorkian. I vaguely...

Wrestling in the Metropolitan

Wrestling in the Metropolitan My wife follows me around the dispensary to gather her food. She says, “In case you’re wondering, my black eye is a badge of honor for our lordship on high. A woman insulted our king of kings by heaping criticism upon our system of rational governance created for our be...

That is priceless. You took it and voila it appeared for her when you replaced it. A successful covert operation. :)

Re: Samaritan

Sasha had you not told me you see it as a misfire I'd have never guessed. Your story worked for me big time. Really enjoyed it. You built the suspense with all the subtle emotions and apprehension on the part of the protagonist down to a tee. Really fine work my friend.

Re: The Story of the Three Sisters

This was part of a series of ancient myths I reinterpreted for modern times. This one was loosely based on a tale from the Arabian Nights book. Though I reinvented the plot, characters, and setting. Thank you for your perceptive comparison to King Lear and fairy tales. Your comment is very much appr...

Re: Samaritan

Sasha, truly suspenseful unfolding of this interaction. How Collins finally learns to trust John without concrete proof but through things coming together as you so brilliantly bring the threads into enough for his faith. Loved the nuances of Collin’s trepidation with their resolution. Quite a tale ...

Re: Rendering unto Caesar, part XIV

You write your mother’s tax problems with the drama of an epic tale my friend. And like a Homeric story Odysseus, in this case you, rises back into the light at the end. Truly and engaging tale gripping and with a grand resolution at the end. Your story had me empathizing with you the protagonist wh...
