Re: “A Tale of Abuse

As someone who just escaped an abusive relationship and knows a little too well what it's like to "enable" her abuser, I am curious to know how the author researched her material? Although it's painful, part of the process of healing (for me) is reading about abuse and I'm looking forward to getting a copy of this!

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

Sorry, Jimmy. I appreciate your quick response. I looked through the Music listings in the above article and then searched on 'LAVA' and didn't find it. Would you please send me a link to it? (You can send it via PM if you like.)

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

Bonnie, LAVA was not overlooked at all; it's indeed included in our fall arts listings. As for Margaret's writeup, I reiterate what she said in her intro: "There's far too much going on for everything to fit into these few pages."

Re: “Sedona Slaughter

Matt Marine is a friend of mine, so when his first book was published I had to read it. I'm a pretty avid but slow reader, and am a fan of action thriller mysteries. But Matt absolutely impressed me!!!! The book is not one of those one inch thick books that can bore me - it's only 286 pages but packed full of fast paced action and twists that makes it hard to put down. I think Matt has many more books in his future. Help spread the word to friends to read Devil's Moon.

Re: “What's Your Story?

Great article. Great monthly event. The curators always put together an interesting theme and a wonderful group of diverse storytellers. There's another great resource for storytelling in a new book called LIVING PROOF: Telling Your Story to Make a Difference by Capecci & Cage - a truly outstanding guide for anyone who wants to learn to tell their own or their cause's story. Everyone should go to Odyssey Storytelling!

Re: “The Simpler Life

Hello "No Fretss" It seems we are on the same page. I also studied with Gisela Depkat and
miss being able to contact her. When I learned about Nancy Green and heard her in concert and
on her recordings, I immediately make the same connection. But the really weird thing is that
today (July 27, 2012) is the first time I have seen your post. Get car's license plate
reads "No Frets". How coincidental is that? Pat Fisher =

Re: “Stamp of Disapproval

It was not boring a la Mamet. I thought very well done and to be recommended as a must-see play. We don't have many of those here.

Re: “Stamp of Disapproval

While I agree that the acting was really solid, I disagree with this being a "flat" play and several of us talked at length about the play afterwards - definitely not leaving the theatre "empty-handed". OK - it isn't the BEST PLAY EVER - but it is really good (echoes of Mamet be damned) so do yourself a favor and go see what I think is a great production.

Re: “Tasty Serial

Any of Joe Brown's books are worth finding, buying and reading. He is the real McCoy - he writes about ranching and the borderlands like nobody else. I wish Joe and Rick Padilla the very best in their endeavors.

Re: “Tasty Serial

You da** sure have it right, Leo! I read the entire book at one sitting. I'm not a Dogie, I had parents, but I also had a yearning to make a hand from a very young age. There were times when Joe watched me trying. Art Brooks, Wickenburg, Arizona

Re: “Modern Narratives

Three years after the publication of this article, I say"Hello, Lee Anne. how are you?" As a crushaholic adolescent Ranger, Class of 1968, I was fascinated by your mind, your morality, your intellect, your athleticism, your face, and, last but not least, your legs! (perhaps you poignantly remember me for that.)

If you choose to respond at all, please update me on your fellow twirlers. I've known for about 43 years about poor Candy Hervey. ("Poor?" Well, if she has spent 43 years in the place I expect to spend my eternity, she's having a blast. But that's only so much comfort when an 18 year-old friend suddenly goes there, right???)

What about Marilyn ? What was her last name? Montague? Montaign? I had one or two classes with her, and liked her.

I have read, over a period of more than 20 years, of the deaths of Babs Bowman and Judy Shafton. Could you put me in touch with others of our Echo and Rawhide gang?

Me? I'm 62, and live in threadbare retirement in West Columbia, SC. When I was 51 years old, God finally gave me a wife. Her name is Betty.

If you see this, please copy it and pass it on to any mutual friends. I may be reached at:

If you like hip-hop, you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It’s a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives and a few songs that matter to them. Pretty powerful stuff. Check’em out here:…
