CD's Treehouse

"I’m going to find a big tree somewhere in a forest in the country. I’m going to build a house up in the tree, and while I may not make it my primary residence, I’m going to spend a lot of time there writing, painting pictures, smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee, looking out through the trees." - Curtis Dawkins

Peace. In trees. On earth. Of mind. At Bull.

Novels, Onward

Started reading novels again. I started with two. One acclaimed book I thought was quite good. Another that I thought was excellent.

I think curiosity might have caused me to over commit. I took seven books out the library today. But it's all fun. It's been almost two decades since I've read fiction with any sort of regularity. I'm in the middle of rediscovering what kind of "stuff" engages me, makes me tick, keeps me reading, the very most.

May have something to say about them. May just get lazy. Dunno for sure. But will enjoy it either way.

Eh, Why Not Here? - Bloomberg and Brooklyn. Rambling Intro.

This is the second time a piece that took a relatively long time was "cancelled." It probably won't much look like it, since I tried to squeeze what amounts to the fifth largest city in the country (and some (10,000 - 12,000 words in notes) into 2,000 words (I can't decide whether that's more of a humblebrag or failure, but I will let the internets judge).

Like before, I suppose I could have just spent more time pitching it a bunch of places. But, I've decided I have too much other stuff to do and wanted to see it somewhere. So why not here?
