Once at the beach
I saw a fish pull itself from the surf onto the sand.
I turned to look, because you don’t see this sort of thing very often.
The fish then carefully balanced itself on it’s tail
& began to hop towards me

“How am I doing?”
Looking good, I replied, & I gave a thumbs up.
The fish looked around, & then confided,
“How crazy is this, boy?”
Before I could reply
the fish suddenly flicked its tail,

Warning: PITY PARTY
I sent this email to one of my sisters on TUE/27 February 2018:
My book sales are low, too.
Bookbub has never accepted me, but I am trying again. Earlier today I submitted a book.
Fortunately, I don’t have to worry about making money from book sales.
I have sold ZERO copies of these books:
Ben Jonson’s VOLPONE: A Retelling
Ben Jonson’s BARTHOLOMEW FAIR: A Retelling
John Ford’s ‘TIS PITY SHE’S A WHORE: A Retelling
John Ford’s THE BROKEN HEART: A Retelling
TARLTON’S JESTS: A Retelling
I have sold ONE copy of each of these books:
THE FAMOUS VICTORIES OF HENRY V: A Retelling
Ben Jonson’s THE ALCHEMIST: A Retelling
I expect my next few books to sell just as badly.
I’m glad the kids liked the books [I sent them].
