Check out the new tenth anniversary issue of Valparaiso Poetry Review. What an honor to be featured with such amazing writers. That certainly gave me a pleasant jolt on a Monday morning.
I spent part of the weekend being terribly, and inexplicably, sick. The people at the hospital were really nice to me. I remembered how much I hate morphine, at least at first. I have a nice bruise on my arm from the iv. I'm feeling a lot better now. It's so easy to forget what a blessing good health can be. I somehow managed to catch up on housework yesterday, too. I actually ironed.
Must spend some time with my door closed today, grading. But I'll be reading the VPR issue here and there as a treat.
PS: Did you know that The University of Akron Press now has a blog? Please check out An Akronism to get a glimpse into our workings. (It's more exciting than you might think. Kinda.)
