“My Gun Is Quick”

Posted in Writers & Writing with tags on September 23, 2013 by kozmicdogz


Currently I am reading Mickey Spillane’s 1950 pulp fiction novel “My Gun Is Quick.”

“The wind picked up throwing the rain around. The few pedestrians left on the sidewalks were huddled under marquees or bellowing for cabs that didn’t stop. Every time I stopped for a red light I could see the pale blur of the faces behind the glass store fronts, the water running down making them waver eerily. All with the same blank look of the trapped when nothing can be done to help.”

Private Investigator, Mike Hammer’s observations on a rainy night.

Fall begins today September 22, 2013 at 4:44pm EDT.  The Autumn Equinox is one of the two times of the year that the day and night are of equal length. From here on out the days will become shorter and the nights longer until the Winter Solstice on December 21st.

I believe this is going to one fine fall.

The RVA Street Art Festival is back. Local and international artists are painting walls all around Richmond and centered at the old bus depot on W. Cary Street.

From the website:
