Seanachai Quote

"Do you really think there are no larger answers to the small ones we can supply? Miguel, we know there are answers for everything. Unfortunately, we know very few of them." (Alexis Paninian to Mitchell Campion following a 4 minute teleportation from Paxton, Ohio to 3XNorth, 3YEast and 150Z off the Coast of Spain, circa 5/28 & 3 weeks, OSB airdate 4/7/1959).

Clachan Gorwallic ~ Even the Pine Cones Fall into Stone Soup

 A day of truer than fiction mix with nonfiction storytelling.

Speaking of *Easter eggs...the egg added to the author's sector of the Hero Journey in Picture Book today was delayed for several days, because the benefactor/author did not know how to go about leaving behind something so personal.  

But digital Easter eggs are supposed to be personal, funny, silly, nostalgic or all the prior.   The eggs expose.   So the benefactor finally got up the nerve and laid down the egg in plain view, near the landing of the Ruby's house revision (renovation).   Inside the egg is another egg; an explanation of how the author gathers fodder, tells stories, and disclaimers about where she finds them (everyplace she can look closely).
Ruby Introduces her Author's Easter Egg

I will not go into what is said there in the world, because it is too romantic to speak about here or on FB.  Its not awkward or inappropriate, its not even directed toward her husband, but it talks about him, 4 decades of friendship and the confession that an author don't always know what she needs, but will get it anyhow. Such is the case with the residence shown.

Poets are always on the hunt for their own bee-loud glade.   In part, because they hurriedly pass it by and see it rarely.  In part because they don't know where to start looking.  Neither would the author except for the fact her husband wouldn't hear of it.
And so the author realizes this spot has grown on her, or she's been attached to it.  Matters not either way.  She will be here for the duration with the fellow who knows her best after all.  Her very own storyteller and Scheherazade (male though he be).

For the actual, way too romantic confession you will have to visit the storybuild, Picture Book.  While you are still in the Ordinary World, take a left red herring detour to visit the author.   You will see the hanging tapestry to click on for its contents.  Then look to the right and you will think you are seeing double, or at least that it what is expected.
