101-WORD FICTION

‘Out of Time’ by Tommy Lorden, Boulder He most definitely knew what hit him. His family and friends would seek solace in the standard untruth that “at least he didn’t feel any pain.” He felt hurried for thoughts, yet couldn’t think of anything in particular from his newfound location on the floor, which was more agreeable than he thought it’d be. No prayer. No flashes of the past. No last words. He hoped there would be time to explain all this before accepting the realization that no one ever wants to truly understand anyway. He’d have to leave the way he came. Alone.

AUTHOR TALK

Natalie Goldberg — ‘Three Simple Lines,’ with Tania Casselle. 5 p.m. Thursday, March 4 via Zoom. Tickets are $5 on Eventbrite, boulderbookstore.net A haiku is three simple lines with the power to, as Allen Ginsberg said, “make the mind leap.” Natalie Goldberg is a tour guide into the world of haiku. In her new book, Three Simple Lines, Goldberg highlights the history of the form, dating back to the 17th century, showing why masters such as Basho and Issa are so revered, and provides insight into writing and reading haiku. To better understand the art form, Goldberg traveled to Japan to explore the birthplace of haiku. In her book she revels in everything she encountered while there, including food and family, painting and fashion, frogs and ponds. She allows readers to share in the spontaneous and profound moments of enlightenment and awakening that haiku promises. Goldberg will discuss her book in conversation with writer Tania Casselle in this online event presented by Boulder Book Store. ROMAN BONNEFOY
