Provincetown / 1

"Congratulations! on being selected as a Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center Summer Residency program artist. ..." (Ohio Arts Council)

Don't you just love it when you open a letter and the first word is "Congratulations"?

I've known since the third week of March.

Now, I have just a little over 3-weeks to plan for the most exciting adventure of my creative life. With the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council, I will be in Provincetown, MA at the Fine Arts Work Center (FAWC) June 2 through August 24. What this means: the whole summer to write on Cape Cod; Traveling expenses; A place to stay; Living expenses; An opportunity to take three workshops; An opportunity to give a public reading.

Don't you just love the word, "Congratulations"? It almost makes up for all the letters you get that say, "We regret to inform you..."

About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
