Right now, I'm reading Brain on Fire, and I'm nervous about what this will do to my mental fortitude. On deck are The Breathless Zoo, On Longing, and Water Puppets. I am a lucky girl to get books for Christmas.

This is the first day in the past month that I have actually been home. The first time I have been still. The last time I wrote a poem was Dec. 1st, when I enthusiastically committed to writing a poem-a-day with another wonderful group of poets. I'm not letting the lack of follow-through bother me, though, because during that time I finished & submitted a chapbook manuscript instead. Finally. That is a nice feeling.
