Literary Buffistas 3: Don't Parse the Blurb, Dear.

There's more to life than watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer! No. Really, there is! Honestly! Here's a place for Buffistas to come and discuss what it is they're reading, their favorite authors and poets. "Geez. Crack a book sometime."

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

This is just Dracula's attempt to convince people to invite him in to their email boxes. Y'all know what happens next.

it was the fourth of May..."It is the eve of St. George's Day. Do you not know that to-night, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?

Delightful

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

And suddenly, Marge Piercy's poems are relevant again. A Right to Life First published in 1980. I cut my feminist teeth on Piercy, among others, of course. But she was the voice in my head and my heart. I am sorry for the fresh relevance of her words.

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

One of my co-workers is reading The Handmaid's Tale and I mentioned that someone had commented it was not meant to be an instruction book.
