Back before I sold my soul to the world of advertising, I aspired to be a real writer. While I was laboring away on short stories and reading small-print literary journals, I came across a short story by a new writer names Rick Bass.
After I found figured out that “real writer” means “real poor” for most people who make their living with a pen, I moved on to commercial work. But I always kept up with Rick’s work, and I’ve always admired it. This short piece from the recent issue of Garden & Gun magazine is the reason why. It’s about dogs, a dream, and a whole lot more. It’s worth checking out and I hope you enjoy it.
