Back Injury and Poems to Share
78º ~ on the way to being a scorching weekend
If you follow me on Facebook, you may know by now that sometime Tuesday I injured my lower back while either cleaning or painting a door. Of course, I thought it was just a sore muscle and I could take care of it with some ibuprofen. Woke up Friday morning in the kind of pain that told me I need professional help. The official word is lower lumbar strain or some such thing, which means I had to postpone a trip to Iowa to see the family. Bummer. Now, I'm all drugged up and forced to be still, so I'll be haunting the internets.
Whilst I was haunting this morning, I realized that I've had some poems and an interview up at Connotation Press for a few weeks. I missed the publication because of end of the semester craziness, I'm sure. In any case, I love this online press for their thoroughness and their variety. I hope you'll check out not just my poems but all the other offerings as well. Many thanks to Kaite Hillenbrand for her excellent interview questions.
PS: Should my posts contain a typo here or there in the next few days, I hope you'll excuse me, Dear Readers, and blame the painkillers.
