Help spread the word… We made this little e-poster for our show. Since chasing down traditional media and trying to get them to cover our show is starting to feel like advanced rodeo maneuvers, we’re calling on the kindness of friends and the internet. 
Please reblog, share, etc.

AMUSING VIDEO TRAILER: (we don’t know why it looks like a weird little box in the tumblr feed view… if you click on it, you can see it in the full post)


I was fortunate enough to work on a dance with Sharp & Fine a couple of years ago. They are a group of talented artists and excellent human beings. See them! Support them!

Donkey Nanny, Lombardy, Italy. In the early spring shepherds drive huge flocks of livestock, here sheep, mules, donkeys, and goats from the Pre-Alpine hills to the plains of Lombardy, for grazing. The newborn lambs are carried in a custom made side saddle by the donkeys, and returned to their mothers at rest time.

Tenth October

My Dear Malcolm, 

I trust that you’re settling into the old homestead. There will be a plate set out for you in the icebox, and flowers beside the bed. In the absence of the homeowner, things have been put in place. It is harder these days than it once was, to tend these matters from afar. The homeowner is only absent, you must understand. Not gone. The end of the sentence approaches, Malcolm, and when it comes, I will return.

Last summer, my friend Maria Dahvana Headley and I cowrote a novella, The End of the SentenceYesterday, my author copies came, and as I was flipping through the pages, I realized that today, the tenth of October, is the day the story starts on. It begins with a house, and with a man who is trying to rebuild his life there. It begins with a prisoner, who claims he has been incarcerated for 117 years, and the end of the sentence is approaching. It is an October of a book, and I hope you like it.
