Well, friends, I just spent an hour and a half crafting a little personal essay for you about this new notebook I bought and how I recently began writing stuff down that nobody would see for the first time in my life--trying to get my values and beliefs together.
And . . . nobody is going to see that post, since when I clicked "save" it didn't save and I don't have the time or energy at the moment to recreate my train of thought.
So instead, I'll just smile and mention that I have poems forthcoming shortly in Atticus Review and Emprise Review, that Red Lion Sq. will record a couple of my poems for a fall episode, and that I'll be reading at William Woods University in mid-to-late September, in case you're local and want to check it out.
More details when they're available.
