Hi. It’s been a while. I think my brain was on word overload the past few days. After my class last week, I spent quite a bit of time revising my manuscript, and today I completed a crown of sonnets I have been working on for my current series of poems. My head is swirling – my brain hurts – and it is a good feeling.
Other good feelings…
Cider Press Review has accepted my poem “Morning after Mardi Gras” for their Volume 13, which should be out next year.
The wonderful new journal Mixed Fruit has asked me to sign on as a slush pile reader, which I was happy to do. Check out Issue One here, and submit!
Finished off the cycle of Harry Potter movies that started 10 years ago when my son was 8. We saw the movie yesterday with my mom, our partner for ALL of the HP films. I am not ashamed to admit that I cried- for the story, yes; for the end of the adventure, yes; but also for the end of a shared interest that has connected me to my son for 10 years of his life. I took solace in the fact that he hinted that he might also be talked into watching the new Winnie the Pooh movie. Oh, nostalgia.
