Since April, I’ve been publishing weekly articles Las dos Castillas,
a literary e-zine of literature and other fine arts. Most its the content is in Spanish, but the Handwriting
section, which includes me, is in English.
Here’s what’s been published so far – for your reading pleasure:Billions and billions of people.
What a changed world looks like.Dark skies.

The fossils I walk on every day.Haiku cut: kireji.
It’s more than just counting syllables.How to read.

Five lessons on how to fight – and to go about daily life.Lies, Gold, and Poverty.
Sunken treasure in Lake Michigan.Madrid Is Ripe for Conquest.
A silly poem about dog poop.Paper into planes.
Paper airplanes took too long to be invented.Teaching and acting.

A three-paragraph short story.Why not “normal”?
A lesson I learned from a “special” high school student.Why you have a future.
