Happy Labor Day! It's a gorgeous day here, perfect for a parade. The heat has lifted, the sky is blue, and there's a light breeze. We have family wamily in town: kids home from college and work, brother and his wife in from the west coast, visiting lots of family around here. So various pleasant gatherings going on. A holiday with bits of domestic labor, which, of course, never stops!
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I worked as an actor, wrote for an encyclopedia, edited a literary magazine, and taught college English courses. Now I write poetry, blog "eight days a week," and listen to birdsong.
