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.
