In The Spotlight!

Yesterday, I was highlighted as November's Poet in The Spotlight by Mass Poetry. Thanks to the poets of SOUP for the nomination.

Belated Birthday Posting for Lee Litif

I found this while digging through my papers a while back. This looks like it was written and recited by someone to introduce Lee Litif's infamous feature a couple of years back, but I can't remember who or what year. It had to be some time after 2009. Any takers? Chris Robbins? Mark Hanser? Anyone?

Liza Zays on the Fourth Decade

Liza has a poem this week at The Underground Garden, reminding us of other things to be thankful for. Read "Currently Serving #1" today at Oddball Magazine.

Chad, Come Home!

How you know your family misses you.

It's All inThe Timing for Holiday Posts

James Van Looy wrote this piece years ago, but he sent it to me a month or so back. I somehow picked today to post it. Seemed appropriate given the holiday and given that my Facebook page shows a Day of Mourning event at Plymouth Massachusetts today.

Read "Geronimo and the Skull and Bones Society" today as part of James' poem column It's All One Thing, and thank you for reading Oddball Magazine.

Enjoy Your Day of Rest This Thanksgiving

I sincerely hope you have at least one day to pause and reflect, whether you celebrate the holiday or not. Here's a video I did a few years back. Probably won't record one today, but you never know...

Keeping The Poetry Going

Great poetry by Faith Breisblatt with great photography by Glenn Bowie today at Oddball Magazine.

Happy Birthday, Lediana Stillo

Seen here at the 2013 Albanian Film Festival.

May every moment today be just as glamorous.

I'm Liking Today More

A nice lineup today. Welcome poet Drew Attana and welcome back the steadfast Ira Joel Haber today in Oddball Magazine.

A Nice Surprise or Two On The Way

About to send some information to someone, which should lead to some exciting news for me, thanks to some great friends.

Josh Olsen, the editor of the upcoming Working Stiff anthology wasn't able to get the book out before Thanksgiving. No surprise there. These things always take longer than you think, and I should know. I do know that they should be getting the cover done this week. He also gave me the smallest hint of what the cover will look like, and it sounds like it's going to look great.

That's it for now.

Live Stream, November 23: Porsha Olayiwola Features at Stone Soup

It seems I deal with a new glitch every week. This Monday night, the camera  wasn't working the first seventeen minutes or so. But we're up in time for Porsha!

Homeward Bound

It took long enough, but my Mom finally got her home fixed up from the blizzard with months to spare before the big Thanksgiving gathering. She kept the old look of the place but streamlined things pretty well and even improved the window insulation and curtains so it won't be quite as cold anymore.

Ironically, her home won't look nothing like this if she's going to have thirty-plus people coming to eat.

On The Limerick Horse Again

There's an extended deadline to Mad Kane's Limerick-Off from last week, and I had a lot of fun with the word choice for my limerick. See mine and submit yours.
