The big springtease

Many apologies if I'm imagining things, but are those daffodils I see charging through the mulch in my front garden? Sure, it's in the 40s today, but it's February 10th. I think the high temp tomorrow is 17 degrees. What the heck?

I'll admit that I've already been teasing myself. In between freezes we've had mud and green grass and the occasional fly, and since AWP's all over spring must be near, right? And then flip flop weather?

Contributors' copies of BOR#1 have all been mailed by kindly Jay R, who hopefully did not bring them to the little mail counter at the Hallmark after all. Thanks galore to everyone who has ordered a copy on PayPal so far! It's nice to know that folks still dig print journals in today's digital age.

Ooh- can't wait to see it!

BOR, that is. Although I also can't wait to see spring ... but I think I know which one's going to show up first.

It's on its way to you! Yay! I am quite certain BOR will arrive before spring, or else the post office will have some explaining to do...

Quick, cover them with more dirt before the next frost sneaks up on them! (Actually I have no idea if you can do that... do not under any circumstances follow my gardening advice.)

BOR did arrive before spring! It's 4 degrees here, but the lit journal didn't get held up by the cold. Thanks for the speedy sales.

Thanks for the opportunity to take part in the inaugaral issue, Mary. The lineup looks spectacular. I can't wait to dig in. Again, thanks!
