Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above

and comes down from the Father of light with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17 NKJV

The Commercial Appeal, daily  Memphis newspaper, publishes an events calendar online.  After meeting the owner of a downtown bookseller and with a book signing date settled, I was nudged to drive a few blocks east to the newspaper’s headquarters.B_12_15FINAL_LongBlackHaircopyr

Decades ago, while working as the public relations director for a Memphis theater, I had regular contact with the person in charge of publicizing Memphis shows, art exhibits, musical performances and other events in the paper’s weekend pull-out. Despite many personnel changes at the paper, to my surprise this colleague was now also in charge of the online events calendar. He agreed to meet me impromptu and the next day he posted the information about my poetry reading and book signing, June 27, at the South Main Book Juggler. The announcement features three of my drawings and the book cover.
