The grey stripped asphalt of the lonely country road outside his home would soon bring mourners.
It was the coldest winter in over fifty years. Could he remember being that cold?
It’s with great pleasure that I announce coldspace, my homage to Andrew Wyeth written in a quasi-stream-of-consciousness fit of inspiration the day his death was announced in January of 2009, has found a home on The Eunoia Review.

Reader beware, the story contains some indulgent run-on sentences and is a bit more experimental than my usual fare.
Who knew that all these years later it would be published…and that THIS winter of 2014 would supplant those winters of Wyeth as the coldest in memory?
The Eunoia Review is an online literary journal committed to sharing the fruits of beautiful thinking. Publishing eclectic and unique works daily, it has become the home for hundreds of writers over the years and a regular destination for readers looking for those entrancing “Buddhist catnaps” of Kurt Vonnegut lore.
Thanks for the warning. It does get a bit “sentence-y” (if I can say that) in the middle parts but otherwise it’s very literary, very vivid and very cathartic. And all of this in less than 750 words.
You nailed the coffin, Dave!
Ha ha – sentence-y – it’s a word! My use of commas in this one is especially egregious (where’s a good semi-colon when you need one?)
Congratulations! A beautiful tribute to Andrew Wyeth. Often times passionate thinking cannot be contained in grammatically correct sentences – let the thoughts flow:)
