A Brand New Year to Fail

After a grand total of one hour of research in the Pueblo Rawlings Library, I finally found some pictures of Cornbread. I have been dying to see his face again and see his eyes and I wanted to post them here. And the failed spirit wins out for a new year I guess. Of course the camera I have been using does not have a flash and the pictures didn’t come out. So I have no pictures of Cornbread but I hope I can put together some prose home movies to give Cornbread a fictive face as the Cornbread Project continues into Ch 18 and 19. I also returned to a manuscript I began way back in 2003 while in New York State. That one is called the Ballerina project and I have about 34 pages on that and I am hoping to get another few chapters on that ever since the bug hit me to return to that.
