great way to end a year. Shabby Doll House has long been a Beach Sloth
favorite. By far their biggest issue Shabby Doll House has pulled out all
conceivable stops. So off the hook is this collection that it rests on the
floor, the hook having been broken long ago. From such humble beginnings Shabby
Doll House has become a true literary paradise with three of the finest editors
the world has ever seen.
Caldwell tires of partying. The party lifestyle is for no one. Yet it sells
itself as a reasonable escape from a world that cannot be escaped. Words fall
out of the mouths of everyone even angels. Many times words come out before the
thought comes out. Small talk grows much bigger when the words have dire consequences.
Every mistake in life tries hard to be forgiven and it may not always work out
so cleanly. To forgive is a tougher thing to do than to insult. Hurling insults
is light lifting requires almost no effort. Getting those insults, those stains
on reputation out, that is the difficult part. Restless energy beats down on
people tiring them out. People live in cities because they want the restless
energy alongside the joyful feeling of hiding in plain sight.
Miguel shows what happens with the start of a family. Parents are by their very
nature tired. They collect darkness under their eyes symbolizing the dark sleep
they should have gotten. With the start of a family people feel sick. Every new
family has a lot of decisions to make: what to name children, what they need to
do to get ready. Children are lovely anxious creatures. Joy of parenthood comes
with not knowing how things will end up. Yet despite that lack of knowledge
they are curious about the future. They hope for the best for their children even
without knowing how things will end up in the long run.
Bowen catcalls a great many things. Cats respond well to catcalls. People fail
to respond to catcalls. This is the world they have established for themselves.
Inanimate objects understand the importance of catcalls which is why the Earth
keeps its hallowed position in the solar system supporting life the only way it
knows how. Recycling is a great way to keep the Earth on the up and up. Without
this support the Earth might have crumbled into a weeping blue ball. The Earth
has cried a thousand tears into its seven seas and hopes to cry out a thousand
more. Cryptic emails are sent to the Earth all the time and the Earth generally
doesn’t respond in a timely fashion. It has a career and the career is going
well. Life as a hermit the Earth has no other planets close enough to it to
truly understand what it is going through. The universe is a cold dark empty
place full of hermits waiting for a little light to shine onto them.
course why would this review end? Nope, I have great plans, big plans for this
issue of Shabby Doll House. Join me as I explore every single one of these
truly magnificent writers.
