Short Story of the day, Caltrops by Tim Pratt

“And to these beautiful two children
And to my sweet and tender wife
I will love you three forever
Through I fly beyond this life”
― Lyle Lovett, The Twelfth of June

Design District Dallas, Texas

Tonight we spent ten dollars and bought an online concert with Lyle Lovett and Chris Isaak – each singing alone and separate. The sang with acoustic guitars unaccompanied. It was genius – the best ten bucks we ever spent.

Chris Isaak singing Wicked Games solo was amazing – a wildly different take on a very familiar song. So was Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing.

Lyle Lovett, of course, was incredible. On My Boat is one of my favorites of all time. He sang a beautiful, sad, new song called Twelfth of June that was absolutely gorgeous, breathtaking, and heartbreaking. I hope he records it soon.

The pandemic forced these two great musicians into this weird pay-per-view format, but it was stunning and so much fun.

Plus, here’s a quick, fun flash fiction.
