Yesterday my poem "Home" was reprinted in state poet laureate Wes McNair's Take Heart poetry column. This sonnet, which is included in Same Old Story, has become one of my favorite pieces to read in public. It's brief and briny, like an olive--a good way to open or close a reading. Now that I think of it, organizing a poetry reading is rather like organizing a meal. . . .

In other yesterday news, master teacher/poet Diane Lockward kindly featured The Conversation in her monthly poetry newsletter. If you're interested in tips about books, interviews with poets, writing prompts, etc., you might also be interested in getting onto Diane's mailing list.

Otherwise, things go on apace here in Harmony. I edit manuscripts. I carry firewood. I bake bread. I read books. I fall asleep.

Congratulations on your poem's inclusion.

I was so pleased to see your book mentioned in Diane's newsletter, which I always enjoy reading.
