A Recommendation

Every so often you find a jewel imbedded deep in the Web. It may get hidden by time, lost to those who might marvel at its facets and clarity. When I find one of those, I want to share.

A couple of months ago I had the flu and consequently plenty of time to wander the Web. Through a prompt from another blog, I found Somewhere Joe's Hooky Beach. He's a photojournalist who lives in southwest Florida. I began to work my way back through his posts. The more I read, the more I wanted to read. (My credo: teach me, move me, surprise me. Do all three and I'm yours.) I found what I think is his sole entry in the world of fiction. It took me back to my hometown of Sarasota on that bleak day; and it drew me into a life I didn't know. I offer this to anyone who enjoys a good story:

Once Upon a Time in the Sand

I've since had the good fortune to meet Joe and spend some quality time with him. I'm a very lucky person to have him for a friend. Check out his site.

I'm so glad you found me dear Bird... and that you've begun your own blogging adventure. Thank you Java, for bringing this lovely human being to my doorstep, virtually and now literally.

I will some day use "our" Siesta Key as a setting for a story, soon as I, heh, get to know it better... I think complete immersion is the approach to this, don't you? ,-)
