The Rural

I'd like to be an urban fellow though I've spent most of my life in more pastoral surroundings.

At left, a lovely fawn by Walter Mains who allows us to use it through wikicommons. Thanks, Walter!

I have twin fawns in my west meadow.

I'm thinking tonight of setting. I've considered recasting a conventional suburban story to a more rural setting. The focus is on the interpersonal relations and how they complicate the intended actions of my protagonist.

I suspect a rural setting with the more barren environment for socialization may do well. I need someone for him to speak with, though. Thus, a dog. He'll talk to the dog.

I don't think the dog should answer. I'm not Karen Russell.
