JOE: Good afternoon Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good afternoon Joe. Taking a break from your book writing?
JOE: Sort of. it’s not just break, I have a column due Saturday and have been working on it today.
CALLIOPE: Tell me more.
JOE: I have been wondering about violence and its place in our culture. I decided to write about the relationship between anger, violence and fear. It is quite a large topic and deserves at least a nook of its own. I don’t have time to write it now but thought it at least deserved a column.
CALLIOPE: Let me know when it is ready.
JOE: I will. That reminds me. I don’t think I told you about my last column on the power of mental illness and the power of love. You can find it in the sliding otter news section on my website at www.slidingotter.com.
CALLIOPE: Thanks. I’ll have a look.
JOE: Later. I hav more work to do before I rest.
