The online Chapter Installments and Excerpts from the Girl Soda Atlas featured here are part of an epic.

 If you prefer to start at the beginning, the Prologue (the Alap) and numbered chapters can be accessed by clicking on the Neighborhoods and Flashbacks on the right  side of your screen.  

(A better Index might be provided at a later date.  Please feel free to leave a comment, if you are having difficulty figuring out the order.)

The MISSING chapters are for the actual hardcopy book collectors only.  To Ya’ll real buyers Thanks!  This starving “process” artist appreciates YOU most of all.

To any people who followed the Girl Soda Atlas previously and were removed from the list, it was nothing personal, just the way I needed to work without distraction, and you are welcome to re-follow for future announcements. 

The Girl Power Academy, the “Other Fish in the Sea” recommendations, My Favorite Comic Book Artist, and the Gratitude Journal of a Music Warlord (my a.k.a. Tabby Ren Elle) will still remain active.  Working artists interested in receiving grants may want to check out the link to the non-profit Pollock Krasner foundation on my about page.  The menu above will provide those links.

 Safe Journey…

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (Related Poem Content):
BY ROBERT FROST
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” from The Poetry of Robert Frost, edited by Edward Connery Lathem. Copyright 1923, © 1969 by Henry Holt and Company, Inc., renewed 1951, by Robert Frost. Reprinted with the permission of Henry Holt and Company, LLC.
