On Falling (Less “Falling In Love,” More Just…Falling.)

I was searching through the archives for something (I’ll tell ya later) and discovered that I have written a fair amount about falling. Tonight, because I am bone-weary tired after this first week of school and the events of the week besides and can’t make sparkling prose from scratch*, I give you not one, not two, but four archival posts about falling that are worth another look:

Enjoy, comrades — and watch your step.

Oh, and one other thing: The comments function on my blog didn’t to work at all for a long time. If you’re new around here and click into old posts, it might look like no one read this blog for many years and then suddenly many people began to read it. (The truth is way better: I’ve had loyal, excruciatingly attractive readers for a long time.) Anywho, the comment functionality functions now, but I have heard from folks that the captcha thingy is annoying and lame. I’m working on that, really I am. Thanks for your patience with the technical aspects of the ol’ PG. Not my strong suit.

*This makes me want something from scratch, like my gramma’s rolls. Note to self: Write about Gramma Rolls sometime soon.

    I love your blog. Since you are an author, if you get a chance to read the poem by Julie Kane on today’s, February 3, 2017, Writer’s Almanac, I think you might enjoy it.

    Re dentist visits: It’s too late for your recent trip, but here’s a tip I’ve used successfully during (lots of) dental work:

    Sing a song in your head, something with a few verses — which I usually can’t remember all of, but that’s OK — keeps the mind working.. Something soothing. My last experience with this: “What the World Needs Now, is Love, Sweet Love” — Dusty Springfield, I think. A couple of years ago, my go-to dentist song was “Morning Has Broken,” which always works. In the U-U church, we sing it (original version) as a hymn.

    Good luck with future dental visits! Novocain helps!
