I’ve re-arranged a few sections from my original posting of these excerpts to emphasize both the excerpt and my new added commentary in this new series. My goal is to post M-F each week, with exceptions due to weather or other unexpected happenings, positive or negative, lol! 😊



Tweet excerpt,

Maybe now, in my sixties, he thought, my days are like weeks now. One running to the other. Is this what timelessness was? he wondered. He hoped not.

Commentary 02.15.21
I chose this excerpt to begin my series of excerpts because it poses existential feelings and questions I think we all either sense or openly ask ourselves. Timelessness, eternity, and implicitly I believe – salvation, are concerns of our precious few seconds as who we are on Earth at any given time. Monotony isn’t part of the bargain, lol! But I’ve begun to feel that monotony is simply ourselves notifying ourselves we need to either expand our awareness, to anywhere really, from the minuet to the immense, or, simply rest a bit. Our own psychological black hole of absorption and rest til we’re so filled with light and life again, we venture out. We begin to live being alive ❤️ Arturo, in this story, exemplifies a tiny arc of this process.



To make posting my series of excerpt tweets for my novella, The Old American Artist, easier for me to post regularly (Mon-Fri), and quicker for folks to see and read, I created a reference post/page with “lots” of info that can easily be reached there 😊

That includes info on or about :

  • Intro to this series
  • Tweet itself on Twitter
  • The image art for my cover, my painting, San Antonio Riverwalk
  • About my art and it’s relationship to this literary fiction work
  • The numbering system I’m using in the tweets (and why)
  • Hashtag #OldAmericanArtistExcerpts – why I use it in my tweets


Thanks so much! ❤️
