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've been an encyclopedia editor, a poetry editor, an actor and director, a library clerk, and an assistant professor of English. Now I'm a freelancer, work part time in a library, blog "eight days a week," study the random, tend perennials, and listen to birdsong.
