A Piece of Wistful Poetry

Blessed be the Sunlight
Oh, here it comes again
Slicing through the rain and clouds
And upon my windowframe.

It may oh maybe
Not so beautiful
Californians cannot see
But a ray of sunshine is a ray of hope
Appreciated eventually.

Dungeons & Dragons Continues

So far I have an interview, tons of products for possible review, an Opinon Editorial piece that will be reprinted in the zine (I plan on sending it to Adbusters and Renaissance in the meantime), another op-ed that is still in outline form, and A LOT OF GAMING EXPERIENCE with this new group I've been playing with in Portland. I also plan on putting a short (if comical) Tunnels & Trolls solo adventure at the end. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will work out.

Two Last Minute Gifts

Reader,

Here are two small gifts for you. The first is the new issue of Musea,

the second is the Musea Reading Fund, half off of any classic anything!



The new issue of Musea, "Chess Sets" is now up on the Musea website

at musea.us. For Christmas each year, I've tried to write a short story

that fits the season. This year it's the story of Barty, who as a child

loved to draw. The story starts out:



Once while 8 year old Barty was working on a drawing… Continue

It's Christmas-time in the city...

This is a holiday ornament I received as a gift via the P.O. Box this morning. Comprised of red and green beads. A silver and red pipe cleaner. Wire. And a .32 shell casing.



The envelope bore neither note nor return address. Moreover, it was marked "Hand Cancel! Fragile", so there wasn't even a postmark. But perhaps the most frustrating (yet tantalizing) part in figuring out who sent it was narrowing the perhaps too-extensive list of… Continue

2009 is over?

Looking back at my first blog post, I can't believe 2009 is done. A better year than 2008, yes, but 2009 did nothing for me. Or I did nothing for it. 2010..... the more productive year?

December Distro Update!

Well, as weird as it seems, this is the year anniversary of the Ms Valerie Park Distro! Funny to think that something I started in my pajamas one cold winter morning from a few of my friends' things in a box is now something I "do". Kind of didn't see that coming.

In the last month, it's been wonderfully bitter cold in Olympia and I've been taking it pretty slow. Here at ye ol distro, I lowered some prices on things and got in a bunch of good new stuff. Also, (I know this is dorky, but),… Continue
