Posts From The Box: Me In Pencil

Even at my non-famous level (9 out of 10 times no one recognizes me at the Farm & Fleet) (and then half the time it’s a relative, neighbor, or Moose Country 106.7 listener), my calendar is such that I meet many, many thoughtful people in passing and simply cannot do justice to their kindnesses or adequately recognize their hard work or support their latest project the way they might hope. I keep a box of books and notes and CDs and miscellaneous objects given to me on the road, and when I can I jot a note or make a mention. Thus, Posts from the Box.

Thank you to Jeannie, who gave me this at a reading a while back. Always touched when people do something nice just because. Also wish I could draw like this. And appreciate that she kinda held back on the gray eyebrow(s).

Lonely Guy Music

Lonely Guy Vol 2

I was a bachelor for 39 years. Pretty poor batting record relationship-wise. Back around the time Population 485 came out, my friend Gene burned a series of CDs for me to play on book tour. I recently uncovered one of them in a dusty corner. As you can see by the cover Gene chef’d up he’s a physical therapist, not a graphic designer. But you can also see he possesses a pitiless sense of humor.
