Dark Moon

I have these tall, beautiful tomato plants that have just a very few green tomatoes on them, pretty much the first of the season. The purple “green bean” plants are bug-eaten and no longer flowering. The herbs are doing well, but while fresh herbs make the food taste really good, they don’t significantly reduce the grocery bill. But the growing season will soon be over. And my financial situation is much like that of many Americans, despite our President’s repeated claim the last 7 years that the economy is strong, and now things have gotten so blatantly bad that even he has to admit there’s a crisis. I worry about paying for “little” basics like heat and food.

With my asthma and allergies, and sleep apnea besides, there’s no way I could keep the hours required by getting a second job of the normal, boring sort; and extra income from creative things is harder to come by when the economy is bad, though I’m trying. I sent out a screen play to Hotel Guignol; and two re-written short stories to new markets, and finally got set up on http://portraitadoption.com/ , with the first two test portraits uploaded and accepted, and a few more to scan and crop and upload in the next few days. And I started a new short story last night, though I’m only a few paragraphs into it.

So, here’s hoping that a light is about to appear at the end of this tunnel!
