Halloween 2008

A few months ago a friend of a friend introduced me to the works of the writer and poet Richard Brautigan. I read Trout Fishing in America and enjoyed it. Then I read The Pill versus the Springhill Mine Disaster (a collection of poetry) and fell in love. I later read another poetry collection, Loading Mercury with a Pitchfork.

While trying to decide what to dress up as for Halloween I knew I needed a costume that would allow me to keep my moustache, as I’m just not ready to shave yet. Somehow Kinsee and I came up with dressing up as Richard Brautigan and Michaela Clark LeGrand from the cover of Trout Fishing in America.
