Long, lustrous and impossibly black, her hair's what caught my eye. In the doll aisle at Hobby Lobby I was mesmerized by her hair.

indian legend of catahoula lake

photo: jetheriot

This text is taken from a brochure announcing the grand opening of Rousseau's Catahoula Inn at Catahoula Lake on Easter Sunday, April 8, 1928.

LAKE CATA-OULOU is the sacred lake of the Indians. It lies ensconced, as it were, in the deep solitude of the great forest which skirts the ATTAKAPAS prairie on the East of the Teche, about nine miles from the town of ST. MARTINVILLE, the word CATA-OULOU meaning sacrifice.

flying crickets

I’M ALWAYS FINDING little flying crickets in our house, hopping near the front door, trying in vain to escape. What a horrible sense of direction this species must have to keep showing up on the wrong side of the door all the time.

I have a magic car wash, a small one. It's a magic car wash for toy cars, a magic toy car wash, if you will.

objects in mirror

I was driving around Austin one breezy summer evening with the windows rolled down, and having grown tired of the sugarless chewing gum I was chewing, I decided to spit it out the window.

the pinner of moths

photo: jetheriot

When I’m falling asleep, sometimes I pretend I’m holding a long hoop-net, like what you use to catch insects. That way, I’m in the right frame of mind when the dreams start appearing. I’m like a kid with a bottle waiting to catch a lightning bug when it flashes.

an equal and opposite pre-action

THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL part of an action is the moment just before the action begins — the pre-action, if you will. From this moment, the pre-action, the rest of the action unfolds. In other words, a pre-action is the seed of an action.
