When these two things land in your inbox almost simoultaneously:

--Your mother gets told by your cousin that he can't believe she's taking 'social and family advice from [Shoe]!... we all know that [Shoe] is and has always been socially maladjusted..."

--BobandRay.com sends you a newsletter offering the latest CD set -- including liner notes by, well, yourself:... "a long, loving appreciation of Bob & Ray by the Canadian critic [Shoe]. One of the best ever written."

Frankly I cannot see how November is going to top this.

Albeit it is, so the Interweb tells me, National Novel Writing Month. Which is intriguing for obvious reasons. Here I am, freshly validated, creative juices stirring...

...I sent off another article proposal to PopMatters, based on this post, hopefully that'll keep them going for awhile. Possibly until I can get perspective enough on the whole wedding fiasco to -- as Shoemom wryly suggested in the course of calming me down after that first email -- get my own back by immortalising the lot of 'em in print.

The sun is cold
And the misty hills bespeak me Of long-ago dreams;
Not lost, only waiting
Kept alive by those who might listen – And watch –
Over the hills to the sea.


This is the story of those dreams...with all-too-frequent detours into reality.

my world at large
