The Meandering Muse: Uncommon Views of Everyday Things
Step inside the mind of a writer obsessed with the workings of the Universe and crazed with the spirit of creativity.
This wacky Dave Barry-esque collection of humorous essays, short fiction, CNF, and poetry spans 20 years of the author's writing life, and ranges wildly from subjects such as multitasking, schizophrenia, shopaholism, money, and the government to the woes of a homeowner forced to use bananas and daffodils to humanely remove wasps from her living room.
These unique and inventive mini-symphonies of words will widen readers’ perspectives on life, nature, and human beings. Some of the essays were originally published as a regular column in a local Montague, Massachusetts newspaper; many were penned in writing workshops.
Here are a few of the essays:
My Mother Lives in the Can Opener
How to Make Monkey Mind Work for You
Shopaholism and Creativity
Here's one of the shorter pieces to whet your whistle:
"Money doesn’t grow on trees—at least in America. But so many new herbs and amazing cures for diseases have been found in various rainforests that it makes me wonder if there might be a couple of money trees way back in there, spewing out dollars and just waiting for the Federal Reserve Board to show up with a special vacuum and suck them all up."
