SO FAIR AND FOUL
[ On the trampled, garbage strewn lawn outside of the Los Angeles Coliseum after most of the concert goers have dispersed quickly due to the storm. THUNDER RUMBLES. The THREE WITCHES enter… Read full post »
When back pain caused by the seating at a play takes attention away from the play, then the attempt at making the experience authentic via rustic seating has failed. You may as well chuck real spears into the audience if you are going that route.

THE GIRL WHO COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING
LOCALLY WORLD FAMOUS SINCE 1973
I hitch-hiked from my home in Bainbridge, Georgia one summer and arrived in Manhattan Beach, California at 3:00 in the morning. I gravitated towards The Kettle because it was the only… Read full post »
The trip through Gaburt's Bayou was so treacherous that Joe and Vijay hardly spoke. Once the boat was secured in the boat house they made the equally difficult hike to the mansion.
Hurricane Thaddeus huffed and puffed and boxed their ears until they rang. When they f… Read full post »
Vijay stayed hidden and waited for the screaming to stop, but instead it grew louder and closer. Things did not seem to be going according to Joe's plan.
Kapeni had been so eager to get at whatever evidence there was that would damn Herr Rikardsohn that he didn't notice rotted p… Read full post »
"The man I'm with kills people for a living. I want you to stay hiding until we are well away from the boat but don't stay in the boat. The storm will probably destroy it and you with it. Leave the boat downstream a bit then walk northeast to the house. The… Read full post »

Joe studied his face in the restroom mirror. He had felt at home as Bill Martin. All he wanted was to be Bill Martin again but bringing… Read full post »
"I'm sorry you had to see that," Beaufort Fletcher kept his eyes on the road as the wind and the rain attacked his pickup truck in sheets from all directions.
"It's ok. Your wife reminds me of my mom," Vijay, alias Ehan Suman tried to say something that would make Beaufort… Read full post »

Vijay thanked the couple, who only knew him as 'Ehan', for taking him up the river to where it met Highway 41. He didn't tell them he was going to New Orleans. It was easy to keep the conversation about the weather. Hurricane Thaddeus took the focus off him. They let him… Read full post »
