The ebook is out on the smashwords.com site and elsewhere, slightly past the solstice deadline, but in time for year end celebrations. Silver Lake Saturday is made like a Xmas tree, the Tannenbaum. Trunk, branches decked with decorations, digressions along the branches of the tale. Shiny tinsel hangs by, each its own mirror, all different since I am human and inconsistent, unlike nature’s blooming trees whose flowers are all the same, beautiful as they are. This tree is decked with shiny globes, little worlds, tin cutouts, dangling participles and colorful ornaments. I hope the book may bring pleasure to someone’s evening whenever leisure is seized, with a cup of wassail, joy tea, mulled spices. And the company of treasured companions of this or other species.
