Mother’s Day

Posted on May 9th, 2013 by Don Cerow

               It’s an old book now, with a plain faded-blue cover. The title, the name of a young girl, is all it says on its face. Opening the book carefully, on the inside in a script written by a nibbed pen in ink were the words:   Presented to Addene Dodson by Arliss Wilson for […]

The Old Moon

Posted on March 22nd, 2013 by Don Cerow

Unfortunately, one of the ‘planets’ that’s taken the plunge is the Sun, so we can’t see the others very well because they’re […]
