A winter book of poetry and prose that tells the tale of life on 32nd Street in the Pacific Northwest. This adventure begins with a poem section "The Blue Remains," turns into short stories "Meanwhile, in the Planetarium," and concludes with a childhood memory "Donald Sleep." For three cold, wet months I waited for the next transmission and kept record of them on paper. I'd like to present these 109 messages to you now, in hopes that wherever you are the sun is shining (unless it's nighttime of course).
