A Letter to Mr. Higgs: (Once Upon A Tine) –a fairy tale about sex after sixty, poetry, and salvation

Good afternoon! –snow is steadily melting; huge embankments still prevail;

my good news is completion of another draft of my fairy tale, now titled:

“A LETTER TO MR. HIGGS: (Once Upon A Sky-Blue Tine) a fairy tale about sex after sixty, poetry and salvation

— completed only a day later than I wanted, to make an appropriate gift for the man on whom the “Mr. Higgs” / “Prince Charming” character is based –of course no response yet from the one who received a copy…. I’m exceedingly nervous about this, for I spilled all my secrets –chamber of my heart has been purged…. 

When I receive a response, I’ll be sure to post gist, not quotes… For the time being, I’m just so happy to have this Word document, 244 pages long.

BUT: I DO HAVE A DRAFT! –AND NOTHING COULD HAPPEN WITHOUT ONE!

“Mongongo Drupe” this week!

THIS WEEK! –JUST AHEAD OF OFFICIAL ARRIVAL OF SPRING : VERNAL EQUINOX!

Just a small update:  Just heard from the publisher! –and the issue of Callaloo 38.1, Winter 2015 with the “sex-positive feminism” story” “Mongongo Drupe” will be available this week!  –that’s right! –my next post (about this “sex-healthy” story should have an image of the cover! –yes; “sex-healthy” a body doing what a body can when inspired by a willing partner UNASHAMED OF BODIES DOING WHAT BODIES ARE MEANT TO DO!  —Hope you like it!

Could not come at a better time! –Just missed my 61st  birthday, 27 February, but that’s all right! –Just want to see it in print! –can’t really imagine what that will be like! –just hoping for similar good fortune with the fairy tale itself: “Once Upon a Sky-Blue Tine” (of which “Mongongo Drupe” in slightly altered form) is a part!  

Drupe –feed your skull with knowledge; feed your mind with this story

  

HEAVY REVISION OF FAIRY TALE: “ONCE UPON A SKY-BLUE TINE” UNDERWAY

Working very hard right now on the fairy tale revision, becoming an even better book.  “Once Upon a Sky-Blue Tine” is steadily becoming better…   I will be working very hard on this, between bouts of MS, especially optic neuritis  which render me legally blind in my left eye; I maintain such hope for this piece; fairy tale of my life –a life I very much want to preserve with hope for all, and for this reason, as many of you may know, I’m quite pleased that very soon, practically any day now, a bit of sex-positive feminism that is a chapter of the fairy tale, “Mongongo Drupe” will soon, very soon now be published as follows:
