Meg Johnson and Kate Greenstreet tomorrow evening in Akron. Hope to see you local folks there! Reading is in the ultra-kitschy confines of Quaker Square. It's going to be great.

Up there above the hills and the smokestacks and chimneys and rooftops, maybe that's where the poems are roiling without us.
I am beginning to feel as if June is getting away from me. Perhaps it is.
So glad to have time to get things done, but so much to get done.
Contemplating an attempt to "block off some time."
Not sure that's an option for me.

On the cusp of finishing what was the most difficult teaching experience of my life (in terms of compressed workload and exhaustion held over from the previous semester).
Graded the last set of papers today (exams tomorrow) and suddenly lines for poems flooded back into my head as if they'd almost been there all along.
I have much to catch up on, including a new collection of poems that needs to be spread all over the upstairs landing where we put our manuscripts when we're sequencing them.
Dogs and cats find this very confusing.
There's so much I need to do, but not quite yet.

May rolls in with a bit of hope and a sense of relief on the horizon. I just finished final edits on A Sunny Place with Adequate Water. I made it through another semester (well, almost there, at least). I can finally leave my pansies outside overnight (fingers crossed).
