Dear Reader, I confess, I'm a list maker. It clears my mind and calms my nerves to list out those tasks before me, and then I am addicted to the joy of firmly marking out the job when finished. This weekend, my list included grading and averaging overall grades and sending out poems. I only made it through the grading portions of the list before my body and my brain insisted on some down time.

Perhaps I'll try to do a packet or two on Mondays for a bit and see how that works out. I hope you'll join me in wishing these two packets well as they sail out into the electronic world of poetry editors and staff readers.
On another happy note, tomorrow night I get to enjoy a live poetry reading! Woo Hoo. New friend and new-to-Arkansas poet, Shin Yu Pai will be reading from her latest book, Adamantine, at the Hendrix College Bailey Library at 6:30 tomorrow night. Watch for my mini-review, as I already have the book and am reading it in preparation for tomorrow night's event. It seems that central Arkansas is hosting more and more readings, and this makes me such a happy poet here.
