Default P.s.

This is a total aside, and I do not want to detract from any discussion we might have about Terry standing there with the stick in her mouth, but it just struck me this morning that I wonder if SM ever read Virginia Woolf's book Flush before or while writing Out on a Leash. Woolf--who often wrote in stream of consciousness form and wildly shifted speakers/perspectives in her writing--wrote this book from the perspective of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel Flush. Oh! It has been ages--graduate school--since I read that book! I will have to dig it out and give it a read again after reading Out on a Leash and compare the two.

These are the times when I long for those graduate school days of getting up in the morning, shuffling about the hardwood floors with a cup of coffee and sitting down to read, contemplate, and write on such musings!

Namaste to you all from the Midwest,
