I am thrilled to say that an independent publisher has expressed interest in reading the whole manuscript of Completely Absurd and Nearly Impossible… which not only prompted me to spend most of my weekend editing the thing, but also to finally post Part Two here.
And it is tempting to say that is Project Create for this week… but that doesn’t seem quite in the spirit of the endeavor. So, here are some observations from a wonderful event here in Ellensburg, a benefit for the health care costs of a beloved local citizen. There was music and dancing, and if you’ve ever been at a small town party for a good cause, you might have seen these couples, too.
There’s a proud mom dancing with her teenage son
There’s a woman with a scarred face and frail body dancing with a stout man in overalls
There’s a middle-aged couple dancing like it is foreplay
There’s a gorgeous teenage girl dancing and twirling and twirling with her beaming little sister
There’s a tall, heavy man dancing with a petite beauty in sky-high heels and sky-high hair
There’s a seven-year old self-described ‘weird kid’ dancing with the girl who is his best friend, who says they are like brother and sister
There’s a woman with bare feet dancing with a man in heavy work boots
There’s a man with a long grey ponytail and a Harley-Davidson shirt dancing with a young redhead in a ripped AC/DC tee
There’s a Delta blues song playing and the powerful voice of a gospel honky-tonk angel singing
There’s a man recovering from a coma, and a family, and a community
And there is dancing.
