Ends and Odds

I'm thinking of a Christmas branch this year, maybe from my apple tree in need of serious pruning, suspended from the ceiling of my living room, strung with white lights. Maybe. It'll take a ladder and the sawz-all, a son or two. Hung from hooks, gotta find the studs (in the ceiling).

Just don't know about spending the $$ on a tree that sheds and tilts (and sometimes tips) and demands water. The $$ would be better spent on, oh, say, meat (rather a luxury these days). (And I do love to eat meat occasionally.) Or even on some really good vodka. It's the holidaze, after all.

And when I find a publisher for my manuscript, I want this to be the cover:
Tiny Tornado, by Rachel Maxi
Reminiscent of Edward Hopper but with an urban au courant sensibility, Rachel's subject range from
the odd vehicle....
Little Ghost Van, by Rachel Maxi the dumpster —
Big White Rusty, by Rachel Maxi
— to oysters, unexpected still lifes, rusty locks and plastic ponies.

And if you can, write her a big fat check, get a big fat painting. Or a tiny one.
