More of The Freeway Giveaway


This will be the third installment of the “Freeway Giveaway”.  There is no timetable for completion, just random postings whenever the mood hits.  

Today I have grown tired of staring at a monitor where the words of the new novel just won’t allow themselves to go where I want them to go.  My characters are in full rebellion mode and so I think a brief pause to give them time to sort themselves out is in order.  

To fill the time I will post two more excerpts from Life Under The Freeway.  For those who have not read the previous entries it works like this: I am drawing two numbers from a box and posting whatever is on the corresponding pages in the book.  Todays’ numbers are 46 and 61.

The book itself follows a narrative arc which will not be apparent in random postings.  Anyone interested in seeing that development is encouraged to try the “look inside” feature on Amazon.

Here goes.



I read your book, man

And I’m here to tell you

Some sidewalks

Seem to never end.



The colors.

Red and gold, metallic blue.  Magenta

Cold fire:

Lifting us. Turning us. Pulling us.

Always upward. Heaven bound.


Clinging to the wheel of life.


What? Why? Where?

You cannot know

Nevertheless you must go.
