Word Up

OK, I've given you pictures this week, now you get words.  (I'm on deadline, in case you couldn't tell.)  You might be familiar with Chris Jones from a number of places, but he is currently writing for Esquire.  Jones is also writing a blog about writing, Son of Bold Venture.  It is a blog about writing, but as things seem to go with writers, it is a blog about life.  His latest entry, "Press Box Rules," makes mention of wet hot dogs, but could apply to nearly any profession.

If you enjoy good writing, I think you'll enjoy visiting Mr. Jones.  Here.

In the box by your post, I knew that was the outlines of the nape of a neck, strong shoulders and the linerar backbone of an Equine!
Could only see Bold...but was pretty sure.
Will check it out.

Thanks for the heads up about this blog. I have been reading Esquire for years since the early eighties, but have not paid it too much attention lately. Can you tell your friend to add a box to get subscribers by email? I can't figure out how to get it delivered otherwise. Thanks Ann

I loved his post about loneliness. thank you for sharing. And while I'm at it, I loved your heartfelt post above.
My sister died at 29 of cirrhosis. A former homecoming queen that literally, lost everything and everyone on her downward spiral with drinking.
I still shudder from memories of her showing up drunk at my work, and I was too self-concious, too young, too stupid, too do anything but feel shame. I wish I could turn back the clock.
If I could, I would save her this time.
Thanks for taking time to write, once in a while, about the un-sharable and the hidden. Makes me feel normal.
