So, instead of writing a new post, as I sat down to do, I've spent the better part of an hour clicking and updating my links section. Dead links are gone. Some blogs, though not current, remain because maybe, like me, their writers are doing other things right now but may return to blogging. I hope so. Oh, and I started a new poem based on a line from a poem by Jose Angel Araguz, from his new chapbook The Divorce Suite. When I'm not writing poems, it seems that often the way back to them is to use this springboard technique, getting a running start with another's language or image.
Very excited to be meeting up with Jose this Thursday: coffee in Clifton, my old hangout from so many years ago.
