The snow came back again last night, powdering roads and yards. By the time I went to bed, there was a dusting of white falling in a fine crystalline mist. By the time I got up everything was white (but not more than an inch so), and large wads of wet flakes were falling from the sky in audible little splats. It's risen to thirty-two degrees (F) outside by this writing, intermittent patches of sunlight are warming the roofs enough to make icicles but not to reveal any grass. With respect to a lazy, mostly homebound snowy day, here are some links I should have shared before now. A few weeks ago, Sunshine flew to Chicago for the opening of an anti-war art show featuring a quilt her mother had made. The show, From Sham to Shame, can be seen advertised on the Chicago Artist Coalition webpage here, and then head here for a look at the actual quilt (you will find you can click to other pieces in the show from that second link). The Sunday we arrived in Kentucky Sunshine discovered, while rooting through her accumulated mail, contributors copies of two new publications including her work. Here you can view, and someday purchase, Crossroads, a Southern Culture Annual (2006), including an autobiographical essay about Sunshine's teeth. Or here you can find the first issue of Cave Wall, a poetry revue zine including three of Sunshine's poems. Related: this issue of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet (number 18) also includes some of Sunshine's poetry. You can purchase that at the official website, or, just wait around until the end of the year when Lady Churchill's... will publish a trade paperback anthologizing the best speculative fiction and poetry from their first ten years, including Sunshine's stuff. Watch this space. [Cavin]

Then, a 0 sided conversation ensued...
