A few other observations from this past month:
- This election engages. It engages because it infuriates, much like a bad script. I hope the nation does not condemn itself. I hope those who take the trouble to self-educate and read widely vote.
- Locker room talk is still talk. This is still a story. It will continue to be a story until November 8th.
- People who go all-out with Halloween decorations are just good and fun people, in general.
- Westworld is reflecting some scary truths.
- Clowns are just fine. Scary clowns are not. Not all clowns are scary. (Logic!)
- The news today feels like the bad day-time TV of my youth.
- The first few cool days in South Texas are divine.
- Teaching is one thing, teaching well is another.
- There is nothing as gratifying as a good story.
- Marginal utility should be practiced with all food and drink. It just makes sense.
- Loosing the internet at home for an evening can lead to unexpected peace.
- Reading is good for the soul, so check out my new short story, a ghost story: FORTUNE IN SMOKE at SFWP Quarterly.
