Read "Points of Origin" by Marissa Lingen
Halloween / Samhain Fest on Allbingo
The poetry fishbowl went well last week. I still have a couple of sponsored poems to post.
There are lots of new installments in the Berettaflies thread. Yes, we're working on a better guide page for the PenUltimate site.
Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Most Powerful, Master Emotion" is complete. Find out how Isao copes with his superpowers (or not). "The Power to Curse" is now complete. Mr. Pernicious and the Spectrum demonstrate why powerfighting in the street is a rather bad idea. So, it's open season on new epics if anybody wants to start a new one.

Lovely fall weather here, again with occasional rain. I'm down to the last dozen or so mixed tulips that need planting. Most of the flowers have quit blooming. Seen at the bird feeders this week: cardinals, sparrows, and on the suet feeder a downy woodpecker. Also a pair of squirrels have been chasing each other around the yard.
