First day of spring joy. Imaginary soundtrack: "Jump (For My Love)" as sung by the Pointer Sisters. Outside all day + watched 8th grade volleyball this evening. Some local girls came in 2nd (yay!) and the champs were a marvelous team. And they could jump!
Took a long walk with Ron Hardy, a poet I first met online and featured at Escape Into Life! Now, as it happens, I can walk the hiking trail with him and sit in my own back yard with him as we are pelted by viburnum blossoms!
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I worked as an actor and director, wrote for an encyclopedia, edited a literary magazine, shelved and retrieved materials in several libraries, walked beans, and taught college English courses. Now I write & edit as a freelancer, blog "eight days a week," study the random, and listen to birdsong.
