The Clock (81 Words) Were I the motion, hammer of the mind I should by motion my free thought express— And through the idle moments left in wind Would meter action to a timed distress.
Let it not be said that I did not enjoy Gabrielle Zevin’s The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. I did enjoy it. In fact, I only write reviews if I hate or love a book, and I very much hated and loved The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.
This brief post is a warm salute to that anomaly among pirate captains, Jack Sparrow. Wallie and I saw the new film and we simply do not know where all those bad reviews come from!

Wallie likes Imps. Wallie is an Imp. Perhaps that’s his trouble. When Wallie heard about the Daily Prompt from the Daily Post—writing nonstop without thinking for ten minutes—he was naturally very excited. He thinks he is a better writer than he is and is always eager to show off. The problem is, he only writes in Impish.
Wallie asked me the other day, “Do dragons have two legs, or four?” It is an important thing to think about. “Four,” I said. “No, two. It depends.” It isn’t easy changing your mind in Impish.*
