Stage 3. Stage 2 comes after Stage 1. Stage 1 is picking up a pencil and pressing the tip against paper. Stage 2 is letting the pencil’s point move. Stage 3 is coloring in the lines and spaces. So, there’s a fish tale about a fish’s tail waiting for a tell. It’ll play itself out soon enough. Not telling can be sheer hell. Hope we go to Galveston soon. A beach calls. And when I go, I will ball this up and throw it into the Bay. Maybe an odd fish will read the story along the way.
