How's It Going To End?

by Jonathan 6 Comments


The barn leaned over
The vultures dried their wings
The moon climbed up an empty sky
The sun sank down behind the tree
On the hill
There’s a killer and he’s coming
Through the rye
But maybe he’s the Father
Of that lost little girl
It’s hard to tell in this light

And I want to know
The same thing
Everyone wants to know
How’s it going to end?

From “How’s It Gonna End” by Tom Waits

And that, my friends, is why we write. Isn’t it? I’m dialing back my social media ramblings for Dec. so that I can find out the answer. Enjoy!

    Not even funny! My heart is thumping with the man on the hill, the sun gone, moon rising - everything is in place or is it? Suspense rips the mind!

    I think I'm going to do the same. I took this past weekend and felt much refreshed for it. I'll be watching for your posts and tweets though. I can't sign up for your OWW posts, so do me a favor and e-mail if you post something on OWW. I'd be delighted to follow your work.

      I checked out your blog post on burnout. It's always good to keep some sort of balance and perspective, isn't it? I'll be posting here and there, mostly on the blog. My Twitter time will likely suffer the most, but that's okay. I enjoy maintaining this blog the more anyway. Thanks as always for stopping by and checking things out!

    I love it! Your posts are always so cool :-) So I gave you an award on my blog! (But just so you know, I would have left this comment with or without the award - I really mean it!!)

      Thanks so much for the award! I'm glad you enjoy the posts. I saw that you posted it over Thanksgiving, but I was visiting family so I didn't get a chance to do anything yet. I'll be getting it posted this week sometime. Thanks for stopping by!
