Good Coffee – Great Cause

Hello, Friends – – –

Today I’m drinking espresso made from Kenya AA grade coffee, courtesy of Banele Coffee. It’s delightfully rich, with notes of chocolate and honey. Proceeds help support wildlife conservation in Kenya. Learn more: https://banelecoffee.com

Have a great day.

POEM: Friday Night

Friday night

I was drunk on
sauvignon

writing
triolets

my note-
pad slanting
to catch
the lamp-
light

For a moment
closing
my eyes

I woke
as the dawn
was putting on
its clothes

Camp Faraway for Bitter Young Men

Hello, Friends – – –

Some years ago, I was a Creative Columnist for the acclaimed Canadian magazine The Walrus. I wrote over two dozen short stories for them, including reader favorite “Camp Faraway for Bitter Young Men.” If you didn’t catch that story the first time around, have a look:

If you enjoyed the story and would like to see more of my fiction on their site, kindly let the editors know by writing to letters@thewalrus.ca. I’d be so grateful 🙂

Until next time, friends.
