My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

So, with my face and other issues, I haven’t been reading like usual. I just haven’t had my focus. I’ve decided to really force myself.

Right now, I’m reading The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories, a comprehensive collection of weird fiction gathered by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. It’s not a tiny book, it’s thick enough to use as a weapon. It has stories by Borges, Bradbury, Lovecraft, all the greats you know, and have yet to know. I’m a third through, so a full-review is forthcoming. However, if you don’t need a ton of convincing, just go ahead and buy it. It’s definitely worth the cash.

    I feel for you. Isn’t the mind so wonderful when the body fails us? I was declared disabled after bone one bone on bone back surgery and then a crippling autoimmune disease which has left me, in no way suffering as you, but still suffering and unable to do much (except for trip to the bathroom during chemo treatments). I have found the strength of my mind to be the one thing that gets me up in the morning and keeps me going. I want to thank you for sharing your world with us and more personally, with me. I send you my warmest thoughts.

    Have you read Ben Loory’s Stories For Nighttime and Some For The Day? Full disclosure, he’s a friend of mine, but I think you’d really like it.

    Hi there Michael, Ive been checking you out and doing my homework….I hope you write or call me soon so I can meet u in person….I think we might have more in common than one might think….I am a huge fan of all that is of darkness and horror. To watch…to read…and to write. I myself have had many crazy journeys in life from being raised amd growong up in chicago to living in the redwoods in norcal….but despite all tge darkness in my life I keep ending up in tampa….a unique city full of both sunny days….and dark alleys! I think that we just might be very good for one another. I would be honored to come meet with you and hopefully work for you as well. So give me a shout, email…phone call and I cant wait to here from you! ; ) ~Sara
