A book I'm working on is set in this town.

Guilt trippin'...

I printed up this photo -- I don't know the photographer -- and am using this as Brendan. He's tacked to my bulletin board and gazing straight at me, wondering why I don't finish his story. So since what I'm working on right now is too intense for me to handle, at the moment, I'm off on another part of the script -- the Battle of the Bogside. I'm using Tolstoy's elegant depiction of the Battle of Borodino in "War and Peace" as my template, of sorts.

Tomorrow I'm off to Iowa City, IA and them Milwaukee. Back home Friday. I'm looking forward to it. As impossible as travel has become, lately, I still enjoy the idea of it.
