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.
TELL ME WHERE, SHEL
I read your book, man
And I’m here to tell you
Seem to never end.
THE SPECTRUM OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Red and gold, metallic blue. Magenta
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.
Love the nod to Shel Silverstein.
