Four days into summer vacation, and I am fully immersed in my new routines: a little more sleep, a lot more working out, a shrinking to-do list, and time to read and write, a luxury I cherish. I especially cherish the fact that today marks my 27th wedding anniversary. I am indeed lucky and happy to have a husband who supports and loves me through all of my crazy endeavors.
Speaking of crazy endeavors, I am extremely excited about my project working with the Lowell/Bishop letters. The poem drafts are moving out of the realm of cento/imitation and developing their own narrative, their own voice, with more of my own language and will being imposed to create not a retelling of their story, but a new story with a life of its own.
Another project will hopefully start its new life soon, this one a collaboration that I am looking forward to with great anticipation. And I look forward to reading and reviewing Nic Sebastian’s new nanopress chapbook Dark and Like a Web, which you can order or download here.
Husbands. And words. Both wonderful things.
