Tuesday August 2nd 2011 - Book 82 - I dedicated this book to Niki and Jeff the now Former Hot Springs Caretakers because they donated the box (and the green beans) I used to make this book. Hours before I sat down to put this scene into production, I talked with Bob the Crystal Miner about "the book" while we worked. Among other things, Bob said, "If Wylie [one of my main characters] called up on the suicide hotline I worked for...I'd tell him to do it." Ouch. That hurt. But, then again, I wrote Wylie to be the very conservative voice of the mainstream. You know, the guy who loves Law and Order like The U.S. Constitution was brought down the mountain by Moses Himself. So, I guess it's good that Wylie touched a raw nerve with Bob...because there's a whole army of Wylies out there, with guns.
PROP COSTS: $10.40 + (STORYTIME WORKED: 1hr 58min x OUR EXCHANGE RATE (based on fed minimum wage): $7.25) = $24.66
This book was sold at NW Book Festival 2015. I wish I could have communed with the ladies who bought this book for longer than I did. They had great energy and a loving chemistry between them. When I asked her what she was interested in, she replied, "I'm into being off the grid." You can't get more off the grid than The Living City. I hope she's enjoying her book! Thanks for stopping by ladies!
