Post 98

In 98 posts I have used up a lot of words.
In 98 posts I discovered one computer wasn't enough.
In 98 posts I visited with a lot of folks.
In 98 posts, the Muskoka River overflowed its banks and carried me in its wake to tremulous and exotic ports of call.
Can the world change in 98 posts?
Mine did.

One of the folks I've had the good fortune to come to know in 98 posts is Lou Freshwater over at Baby's Black Balloon. Lou is a tremendous intellectual who writes with a deft common touch. I admire her work immensely. In #fridayflash circles, Lou is respected by writers of every ilk, and for good reason.
I am just beside myself that she offered me a chance to write something for her blog, a guest post. Thrilled doesn't even come close to describing how, well, thrilled I am. Thank you, Lou, for the honour, and for your kind comments and your encouragement.
Some day I hope I can do something wonderful for you.
In the meantime, see what I'm so excited about.
The story is called Gone and you can find it at Lou's Place.


  1. Lou is an amazing writer. One of my favourites for sure. How exciting that you have a spot at her place. I'm going to take a peek.

  2. Just another reason why Lou's Place is one of my favorite hangouts.

  3. You sneaky thing. This was supposed to be all about you and YOUR awesomeness.

    I will not, however, pretend that you did not make me feel better today, and for that I am grateful. But still, back to your work... ;-)

    Mark and Laurita, you are two of my favorite writers, so thank you in ten languages.

    Signed, Lou of the place.

    PS - I am not an intellectual, I am an emotional.

  4. Congrats! Guest spots are fun. :)

  5. I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren't alгеady ;
