Oh yes,may the QUIET STICK !!! For years I thought media that portrayed the forest and trees as filled with evil(man eating trees,,,mad witches,,,chainsaw hacking trolls)was a disservice to natures' wonders,,,But now I find comfort in the fact, so many , "bought the myth",,,may the QUIET STICK.......May the wonders of life,fill the quiet. Peace Always

Survival interrupts paradise ... coyote is one smart dude. And I loved that element "Free from fried tofu and sauteed taters" ... you can have the fried tofu, but my heaven features hash browns. xoxo

TLP said...

Hey, I almost forgot I was "on" today!

You write so very well. (But there was a lotta bunny eatin'. Just sayin'.)

I think Coyote is wiser than the fox at times. Doug I truly admire your works of late - and think this new set of Cantos is much suited to you. The desert is filled with life - and is so much more preferred by lovers of stillness than those who frequent the man made cities of concrete.

TLP - You have the voice of a Storyteller. A pleasure to hear.

And I finally got to hear TLP ... who is a wonderful reader ... despite the bunny destruction. ♥ TLP ♥

OOOOoooo! So SAD about the bunnies! But nice to hear my very own mommy, who sounds like a sex kitten, I might add.

Doug said...

And also to you, Reverend Bear.

Mine too, Mireille. The smell of hash browns will taint my death rattle, I bet.

TLP, you read so very well. Thank you.

Terry, some people are born for the desert, others for dessert.

Mireille, you'd heard TLP before I think, Incidentally, I bet a lot of us would like to hear you read.

Sis, an excellent review.

Wow, this was great, Doug, lots of fun to read my own self, and Mom did a great job--and I didn't know she was ON, either:)

Jamie Dawn said...

Well done, TLP!!

:-)

I'm sad about the bunny's head being gnawed upon.
Poor wittle bunny wabbit.
Crow ate junk. I like junk food too. I guess Crow and I would get along well.

The fellers are in Patterson now, munching almonds with Granny & Grandad. They enjoyed the barbecued snake you fed them, but next time they'd like it a little less salty.

Now why do you seem right at home in this setting? Unionville that is. Wonderfully written and I thoroughly enjoyed TLP's mellifluous reading - like butter.

You two make a fine pair!

Doug said...

Actonbell, I'm glad mom can still surprise you after all these years. Dddragon knew. She totally knew.

JD, I also grilled the onions. I didn't know they liked fresh onions on their double-double snakes.

G, once upon a time, I was at home in Unionville. We both make a fine pair? Thank you!

TLP said...

Thanks guys.

You really are a talented guy Dougie.

Cooper said...

I shall kiss you for this one.

Doug said...

Bear, the one East of Coso Junction?

Of course, TLP. It's a gift to get talented readers working for free.

OK, Cooper, but my feet are ticklish.
