This afternoon I have a reading and signing at the West Coast Branch of the Pensacola Library. Thence I drive to Mississippi - along the way I may stop by Fairhope to see my buddy, Sonny Brewer - may angels forever sing his name - tomorrow I have a reading and signing in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Then home.
Those last two words are my favorite. It's been a good tour, and people have been wonderfully generous. It's been fun. But those two words: then home. Try them on your tongue, see how solid and light they feel. Then home. Then home. Then home.
