Rain, rain, go … into my new book!

This 2012 photo is from the Bridgewater Eagles website.

It’s raining.

The rain has cancelled my son’s two games today and all of the games at Christie Pits. But if you read Tagged Out, you know what “rain” means to the kids on The Blues — Mudball!

So, instead of writing the chapter about the Blues vs. the Pirates for my new book, Home Team, I’m instead writing the Mudball chapter.

I’m listening to the sounds the rain makes on my roof, and putting Miguel in that situation. And what it looks like on the window, and on the street, and in the trees. We all have memories of rain, but it’s great to have the rain dictate its characteristics, directly, in its own way. All I’m doing is listening, and writing it down. And calling it “Chapter 9.”

Rain, rain don’t go away — because it’s Mudball time.

Not it!

One thought on “Rain, rain, go … into my new book!

  1. – Yes … @zalzankavol2 – Yes if an illegal is dying in front of a hospital the doctors will treat him. We do that because Am872can&#ei1r;s are decent people and we don’t let people just bleed to death in the street because they don’t have a green card. But under health care reform if an illegal wants to consult with a physician and acquire a pharmaceudical prescription he’ll just have to pay Rush Limbaugh to score some of his personal stash. Everyone knows he’s got the good stuff anyway.
