I've just finished up my sixth non-fiction book. It's about Blackwell’s Island, now called Roosevelt Island. In the 19th century, management of New York City’s poor, insane, and lawless were thrown together and warehoused on the same narrow, two-mile-long island in the East River. It didn’t go well.(Algonquin Books, 2018).

I write non-fiction, so what I do is 1: spend some time thinking about what are the most interesting things in the world to me at present, 2: pick one, 3: write a proposal that hopefully conveys what is so interesting about the subject I selected, and if all goes well, 4: write a book about it.

The pleasure of spending a couple of years immersed in a subject you were dying to learn about can't be exaggerated.

The bad part: when you are in-between books and there is no guarantee that you will get to write another. (Where I am now!)(less)

Democrats vs Republicans — It’s the Hatfields vs the McCoys

I did a quick check of how my Trump supporting friends were doing yesterday and saw that one of them had posted about a letter from Ted Nugent to Biden, ranting about how dare he call for unity after … and I stopped reading quickly.

First, Ted Nugent cannot lecture anyone about unity and civility. And I thought, no one who supported Trump can lecture anyone about unity after the last four years. Tr

“I tried to catch the eye of everyone around me who wasn’t a soprano I. I get it. First sopranos don’t feel this. You hear it, but you don’t feel it. You don’t know that those lowly peasants making a nice vocal cushion for you to step on had parts that were every bit as rapturous as yours”
Stacy Horn, Imperfect Harmony: Singing Through Life's Sharps and Flats

“Music will enable you to see past facts to the very essence of things in a way which science cannot do. The arts are the means by which we can look through the magic casements and see what lies beyond.”
Stacy Horn, Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others

“There is no spot on earth that is free from loss. On this street, or in this room, someone lay down or was put down and was no more. Someone held someone else for the last time here. Rivers and lakes and oceans are full of people who vanished beneath the surface and were never seen again. Wherever you are standing, wherever you call home, someone left the earth there. Everyone we love dies and disappears.”
Stacy Horn, Unbelievable: Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory

Howard Well, whether it did or not, I couldn't stand the idea of people saying it did and saying "SEE!"


message 2: by Stacy

Stacy Ha! (What would you put? I'd put December 27, 2060. Or do you think this would work like a jinx?)


Howard Creepy, but I was sort of tempted to fill it out.
