Next Week

Next week beginning on Monday … another multi-part story of love and war … craft.

It’s like in the great stories. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

  1. Although one wonders if “Love and War … craft” would have been as highly acclaimed if it was published under its original name “War(craft) — What Is It Good For?”

    Looking forward to Monday! (can’t believe I said that)

  2. Hey there was a sad smiley there!

    Looking forward to Monday too now, but multi-part… the suspense will consume us.

  3. Mmmm, intrigue, betrayal, suspense, lust, vengeance and phat lewtz… a virtual goldmine of literary goodness.

    You sir, are the Vincent Price of the new millenium.

  4. Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
    Man never Is, but always To be blest:
    The soul, uneasy and confin’d from home,
    Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

    -Alexander Pope,
    An Essay on Man, Epistle I, 1733
