Episode 57- February 22, 2016

Welcome to the Red Fire Monkey year!  Host Jennifer Ellsworth introduces Chinese astrology basics and explains how this is the year to risk it all on what you love.  She also interviews Josh Ard of Permanent Expressions tattoo studio in Belfast, Maine about how passion influences his work, and reads a short story about a hitchhiking high school girl hot on the trail of her heartthrob.  It's called "Jobs, Not Jail."

"...Getting rides is always a bitch in winter. You’d think drivers would see some poor bum walking the sliver of white line exposed between snow bank and main drag and pull off to offer a ride out of the slush, but it’s just the opposite...."

Moon Astrology:  Full Sap Moon in Virgo:  Be particular.

    Love this, Jenny! The information about the 1896 election is fascinating, and I thoroughly enjoyed the voice of the narrator in your short story. You are such a talented writer, something I've been saying for years.
