Joy Amid Sorrow

Most regular readers of this blog probably know from other sources that my mother died recently after a battle with cancer and that I am currently in Dallas with my siblings, sister-in-law, and nephew. Despite the sadness this event has brought, I have received great joy from reuniting with family and from the many messages of love and support I have received from friends near and far.

I have also continued to be rewarded with publications. I have poems appearing in several online journals now or soon. Currently, I have a poem in Issue #3 of Praxilla, and will soon have others in MiPOesias and Bourgeon, a DC-area arts and events site. Watch this space for links.

I am very grateful to ALL my readers and friends for their continued support and inspiration.

Weather Arrived

I arrived home rather late yesterday after a reading to find in my mailbox a package receipt for a delivery from Finishing Line. I hurried down this morning and retrieved a box full of copies of Drinking Weather. The wait is over!

Please let me know as your copies arrive; or, if you still need to order, follow the link to the right or go to Amazon.

Regular visitors will no doubt recall some recent posts about the Little Patuxent Review Water issue that my Lovely Friend Naomi and I were published in. As a follow-up, I was asked to contribute some thoughts about the craft of poetry to be posted on their web site. My response has been posted here and I invite you to have a look:

You can also watch the video of my reading at the issue's launch party.
