…I had a story published and nominated for Push Cart Prize the other day.  Yay.  Here it is:

…And I had this little thing published as well, which was rejected by another magazine for being too dark:

…I’m leaving for Vancouver tomorrow, back Sunday, so I won’t be writing here for a while.  I hope you have a great week and weekend.

…Here are some things to ponder in the meantime:
-“I love people who make me laugh.  I honestly think it’s my favorite thing, to laugh.  It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” Audrey Hepburn
-“Art—whether it’s creative writing, visual art, performance art, film—is a form of resistance. None of us wants to be invisible, unseen by our community, cast off, marginalized. Art gives us a way to say, “I am here.” --Terry Ann Thaxton
-"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection." Thomas Paine

-"Nothing can resist a will which will stake even existence upon its fulfillment." Benjamin Disraeli
-“It doesn't matter how often you get knocked down; what matters is how often you get back up." Vince Lombardi

-"What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form, in moving, how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a God!" William Shakespeare

-"Aerodynamically a bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway." Mary Kay Ash

-"The greatest achievement of the human spirit is to live up to one's opportunities, and to make the most of one's resources." Luc de Clapiers

-"The great end of art is to strike the imagination with the power of a soul that refuses to admit defeat even in the midst of a collapsing world." Friedrich Nietzsche

-"I can give you a six-word formula for success: Think things through - then follow through." Eddie Rickenbacker
