an autobiography; its family legend.

Did  I break my arm and spend 3 days in a hospital? Yes. Did my brother stab me with my own pocketknife? Yes. Do I have re-occurring dreams of the same house near a UFO base? Yes.

    If there was going to be a sequel, which of the following would you rather see:

    1) A prequel about Brother Wellman and his first encounters with the Indians and Them that Live Below.

    2) The continuing story of the three brothers as they journey toward the wellspring of Music.

    3) A variation on the first one where it moves thru history from Brother Wellman up to RJ’s Mom with the demon Sparky as the main character.

    4) A more true to life autobiography of my life up to about my days as freshman in college?
