A little Monday sugar.

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.)

Congrats on VPR! It's among my very favorite literary magazines. First or second, actually. Can't wait to read your poems
