To so many women I owe thanks for their wise companionship while being une femmoiselle which helped toward the success of my many Saharan adventures. This HONEY SPOON began in Tangiers Morocco on December 30 1990 as a birthday poem for my friend the writer PAUL BOWLES. The poem developed into riffs of prose starting with HE, just, as though I was blowing a trumpet solo telling about something through music on the horn and the riff was soon picked up into a swinging statement that still started with HE and the results is the prose became simply a long-winded short story. It was completed in ten days, but Paul Bowles never heard it, only the title was told to him HONEY SPOON. The long-winded short story was handwritten in a small note book and was not ready for book form or an editor's eye until Madame Kate Welsh took charge of typing it in Paris and then it a computerized laid-out by Monsieur Joe Francis. In an expedition of words as this HONEY SPOON is, production depends on willing co-operation and at times, even, on an unreasoning obedience to the author. I thank all the minds and actions for their tolerant tactful and wise helpings with this First, especially Jim Haynes of Handshake Editions for allowing me the opportunity to see it in book form and published. Lastly but not least, I want to say 'merci beaucoup' to the advance subscribers for the Special First Edition of Honey Spoon.
