The Polynesian saying, “standing on a whale, fishing for minnows,” was quoted by Joseph Campbell during his interviews with Bill Moyers in “The Power of Myth” series.

I little over a year ago, I was contacted by singer/songwriter Martha Fields. She was in the process of completing her latest album, "Southern White Lies," and had discovered my Southern Gothic work (from New Lit Salon Press) and asked if I would be interested in working on an album cover.

The picture above is a page from the book, Mechanical Laboratory Methods (Smallwood and Keator, 1931), that I discovered in my very favorite used book store, MacKay’s in Chattanooga, TN.
