the week that was winter break
flew and plodded along
with icy marvels
and deep cold.
the birches drooped
and the fence lines made new patterns.
just over a week until i leave for australia!
more about that in a day or so.
good news graced the inbox
my two books available above on this site
(see the bar with the shop label?)
Poor (Wo)man's Asparagus and November, A Map
were just purchased for the poetry collection
at the University of Buffalo (Lockwood Library).
i am dancing to think that my poem/books are there.
i loved the woven ice as the sun began to sink
and saw scarlet and purple and greens in the dazzle
as i get my stuff together for the trip
i've spotted above this summer prunus print on arches
four hosta papers
colored with north country ochres
i also realized this terrible headache
and weariness is
a sinus infection
so i got myself to the after hours clinic today
and am taking a killer antibiotic.
the wonderful doctor had an auspicious name: wendy.
there was a wonderful visit from hannah this week
who modeled a unicorn head
at brewer bookstore.
i had a wonderful and wonderfully long chat with an artist
about some new teaching locally.
and more news is coming,
