March 6, 2012Been working for the past 50 days on my Wyatt Earp time travel project. One of the things that grinds me is when oldtimers, especially certain cowboys, start pontificating on "dudes" in old photos. I have several photography books where some "local expert" labels an 1880s photo of a guy, with his pants tucked in his boots, or some other mortal sin to a 1930s cowboy, as a Dude, and I'd love to pull out an expert from the past, a la Woody Allen in the movie line, and give the "expert" both barrels. That led to this page of notes:
Meanwhile, Juni Fisher and I are scheming on a Dixxy Diamond story for later this year. Got some doozys in the hopper. I have some very ambitious goals, but sometimes those don't help us as much as we'd like. In yoga this morning, our instructor, Debbie Payne had a good quote: "The only limitations we have are the limitations we mistake as goals."
Well, okay, at least I'll be consistent, then?
