Day 10

Day 10 – Total confirmed cases in the US: 55,225

Fiction, if not the last refuge of a scoundrel, is a list a brief refuge from the number at the top of the page that won’t stop climbing. Today’s distraction is flash fiction and a drawing:

The breeze blew sweet in Turner Valley. Slow and sweet and warm. The most contented cats on the planet lived there. The humans, inherently good, had a great capacity for learning but almost no ability to retain what they learned so that they needed to learn each lesson over and over until it became second nature, requiring no thought.

The homes were mostly made of stone and housed multiple generations of family in each. In the home at 17 Stone Street lived the Lovelace family. I am sure I’m not the only one who has already lost interest in the Lovelaces, in all the homes on Stone Street, and in the sweet breeze that blew through Turner Valley.

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
