And here we are on Day 1.

The grand letter A. I wonder if there are more A posts on the A to Z challenge than other letters. But probably not combined. There are hardy folks who blog the whole challenge with Actual Words that Mean Things.

Since I am already doing a Ray Bradbury Challenge, the idea here is to post links to a poem and story  that I am reading AND start with the day’s letter.

So, our poem of the day, Atlantic Elegy, by Julie Marie Wade.

And our story is A Dark Brown Dog, by Steven Crane

If you are a librarian, please ignore my A story should really be a D story.

At some point in the month, I will actually make observations about the poems and stories, but this is a band heavy weekend. And the oboe won’t play itself.
