From This Point On Atop Brush Mountain, a weather-beaten wooden sign denotes the spot near Blacksburg where watersheds divide. Spill half a bottle of water and it will trickle eastward, join the James River, rush through Virginia to Chesapeake Bay. Pour the other half over the crest, it will wend westward to the Mississippi, splashing over deltas till it swims into Mexico’s Gulf. Lie down on this divide, feel the weight of consequence, each decision flowing like individual droplets of water hurtling toward fate, every choice from this point on affecting only the timetable, not the destination. ~ Bill Glose

A Peach from the Icebox An itch for a peach that drips down the chin the forearm how sweet a lick a bite to the stone.
