Here I am on vacation, with the full intent to take a break from the Internet and relax for a bit. Sure, I’m checking email, just in case something important comes up, but otherwise, I’m unplugging.
And today — my first real day off — I get an email with news of a new publication!
Better still, it’s already online. So here I am, sharing the news with you.
It’s not one of my happier stories, but it is my shortest piece ever, and it’s quite the hybrid — if you wanted to call it a prose poem, I certainly wouldn’t stop you.
