Week six of the kitchen renovation. Highlight of the day was seeing the giant roll-off hauled away to the dump. No, wait. Rewind. The highlight of the day was the William Kittredge essay I read, “Drinking & Driving” in this week’s edition of Narrative. A fine piece about the author’s early years in Missoula.
I’ve had my stuff published in the same magazines as Kittredge twice now. Maybe more, I don’t know. The first time was in the Talking River Review. The second was Narrative. Meditations on those sorts of things make for powerful longings. They also serve as a gentle nod, letting you know you’re on the right track.
