Many years ago, Hank Williams, the great country singer, had a song with the line, ""We're still living, so everything's o.k." This is just to echo that line.
The holidays have keep me away from this blog for the most part. And I have been doing some review/essays for Magill's Literary Annual, not to mention a long article on Alice Munro, with connections to Eudora Welty and Flannery O'Connor, for a Canadian friend who is editing a collection of essays on Munro. This will be my third Munro essay in the past twelve months. As soon as I finish two more Magill's reviews (on novels, no less!), and the current Munro/Welty/O'Connor piece, I will get back to this blog. Thanks to all those who have been reading my archived pieces in my absence.
