We’ve been away from the computer a lot this summer, but have been keeping up appearances online, with poems at these wonderful web zines:
In the U.S., Ascent published my “Crepuscule” many years after editor Scott Olsen asked to talk about aging.
Valparaiso Poetry Review reached back millions of years with my poem “Footprints.”
In Canada, the new Juniper Review allowed me to give a birthday gift to my wife Mary Lee Bragg with the poem “Amnesia.”
Not incidentally, Mary Lee Bragg has just published her first full poetry collection, The Landscape that Isn’t There, from Aeolus House Press. It is the mature work of a lifetime, as you know if you heard her read at the Aeolus House launches in Toronto and Ottawa recently. She will be giving readings from the book in Ottawa at Tree in October and in Victoria at Planet Earth in January.
So we’re quiet here, and spend much of every day in silence, but all along, things are humming.
