Last year at this time, Meshell and I were talking about me publishing a children’s book. She had an illustration called The Power of Soup and I wrote a story about it with the same title.
I also registered www.thepowerofsoup.com. With all the money that was going to be coming my way, I thought it was prudent.
I made only one (failed) attempt at getting the story published and gave up.
I received three or four e-mails about the site subscription coming to an end. Each one a reminder that I was a lazy fuck. I just wanted it to die.
Well it didn’t…

The automatic renewal was on. Crap.
So, for someone who does not believe in fate, I am going to make the best of this. I’ll re-write and re-submit.
Maybe we will look back at this and laugh. I’ll let you know how it goes.
