Quoting The Daughter of Scott And Zelda

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Good writers are essentially muckrakers, exposing 
the scandalous condition of the human soul. 

It is their job to strip veneers from situations and personalities. 
The rest of us accept our fellow beings at face value, 
and swallow what we can not accept. 

Writers can not: they have to prod, poke, question, test, 
doubt, and challenge, which requires a constant flow 
of fresh victims and fresh experience.

Frances "Scottie" Fitzgerald Lanahan

introduction 
to  this book.

At the age of three, Scottie 
was a voting member of 
the Fitzgerald household.

Do Not Take This Too Far

________________________________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________

______________________________________________

There is what is
There is what is not
Basically that is all we got

There are those who have got
There are those who have not
Basically that is all we are
*
Do not take this too far
Do not scream at the star

Do not wail at the heavens
Do not lose your nose
Because there are always those
Between the sevens and the elevens

Return To Her Eminence: Dawn Powell's Mrs. Hemingway Novel

________________________________________________________________________________________________


THE



























***                            




























the shore line.

A great heron fluttered heavily over them,
sinking into marsh without sound.
Gulls and quail squawked 
and circled the blue. 

Mudhens–dowdy middle-aged birds–
sat on old marking posts,
immovable, ugly.

A black and gold butterfly danced suddenly out 
of the beachplum trees, essayed a tiny sea voyage,
followed what seemed the fractured reflection 
of a dear playmate in the water,
then was gone in sunlight.

The canoe slid through the bushes,
the tall stiff, salt-tanged grass.

It brushed the shore where wind 
whooshed through the balsams,
where bee and blue bottle fly 
whirred low over the 
brown toasted earth.

The Starbucks Coffee tasted exactly the same

is much cleaner and has livelier baristas.

BANKSY Theme Park Opens In England

________________________________________________________________________________________________


Spray paint, marker pens, knives and 
are banned from the site.
 
The "Dismaland" theme park is located in a derelict outdoor
swimming pool centre in Weston-super-Mare, a coastal town 
near Bristol in the west of England.

Visitors will be greeted  by a burned-out version 
of the famous Disneyland castle...


It features a riot van built to patrol 
the streets of Northern Ireland, 
altered to boast a brightly-coloured slide 
alongside its water cannon.

In one fairground game, visitors can steer 
miniature boats full of asylum seekers
around a pond.


The exhibition opens this Saturday until September 27

Absolutely no refunds under any circumstances
