Simple Wisdom

You can have a plain
hot dog if you want,
he said, but until you've
had a real polish
sausage you're only
half alive. I decided
there were worse things
& I was only ten &
could correct the
serious mistakes later
& the plain dog tasted
just fine, even being
half alive and all.

Last summer I discovered writer/artist Brian Andreas - am really enjoying his simple wisdom (and his artwork) and wanted to share some. If you're interested you can find out more about him and his work at Story People.

Hi Heidi!
I think that book would really be something for me, thank you. I have run out of books.
This winter I have taken time to read more, -like I used to-, and there is thee books I´d like to tip you off about:
"Letters of a woman homesteader" by Elinore Pruitt Stewart.
"Give your heart to the hawks" by Wil Blevins.
"Shackleton´s forgotten med" by Lennard Bickel.

But especially this one is heart-striking:
"The curious incident of the dog in the nighttime" by Mark Haddon.
I have never read anything like it in style nor matter. Oh, please, it is finished in a matter of days, and it will set your thoughts running!
Take care and congratulations on your new possition (8am class and all).
