99 steamy deg ~ a sky of bright sun, a slight breeze that simply pushes the heavy air but does nothing to alleviate the heat, lethargic
Between the heat and professional development week, blogging and poetry have slipped a bit; however, next week my normal MWF routine shall rise again.
In the meantime, huge congrats to those poets selected by Claudia Emerson for the Best New Poets 2010. With apologies to Jane Austen, "Among them are some who will claim an acquaintance with [me]." I'm so happy to celebrate with Angie Macri, whose office is across the hall from mine and is a good friend as well, along with Luke Johnson, who has become a blogging friend through the miracle of our existing in the age of the internets. To Angie and Luke and all the rest, hooray!
