Time to say goodbye to September! I have to admit, I’m a bit happy to say goodbye because it has been a pretty hectic/rough month for me on many levels.
On Sunday I had a chance to read with two other poets for the NC Poetry Society’s reading series at McIntyre Books near Chapel Hill, NC. What a terrific bookstore! Thanks to Maureen Sherbondy for her iPhone powered photo of me reading.
I did manage to find time to draft two short poems and I’m preparing to send a few out (I have two hours before I have to be on the road again so can I do it?).
The poem I’m sharing today is extremely knew. Like just wrote in my notebook and typed up yesterday new.
And the poem is back on my editorial desk -
As always, I’ll take down my poem and any that are left in comments this time next week.
This week most of my classes met in the library. Although, with at least one, I should have been teaching proper library behavoir versus how to do research . . .
I still love the library although I don’t use it as much as I used to. The library was such a haven for me when I was a kid. I have to admit: I love to study!
What have you guys been up to? Any pressing poetic questions?
In other news:
- Even though things have been a bit quiet the blog hit 60K overall views this week since I started it
- I was interviewed by CL Bledsoe over at his blog
ok so that is actually a short list, but hey it is something!
Hope everyone is having a great week and that they are looking forward to making the switch to October. I have high hopes for October. So many hopes that I had my toenails repainted orange
