Happy Valentine's Day. My husband called me his "one and only" and "his treasure" and I gave him a poetry collage (new poem created from lines of other poems snipped from books, a way of recycling old books) in a picture frame (also recycled).
Tomorrow, discount chocolate!!
Also tomorrow, I'll reading for POETSArtists Magazine, From Motion to Stillness issue, at Zhou B Art Center in Chicago. Exhibit opening, 7-10, poetry reading, 7:30. If you are a Chicago person, I hope you can come. Ack! What'll I wear?!
And here's the Men in Love feature at Escape Into Life, for Thor's Day in the blog!
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I worked as an actor and director in Chicago, wrote for an encyclopedia, edited two poetry journals, shelved and retrieved materials in several libraries, walked beans, and was an assistant professor of English. Now I serve as Poetry Editor and Editor at Large for Escape Into Life, an online arts magazine, write & edit as a freelancer, blog "eight days a week," study the random, tend perennials, and listen to birdsong.
