Good morning and happy July — rabbit, rabbit, rabbit. I’ve been working on something, but it isn’t finished yet. So I’ll tell you what I’ve been reading.
“The Fugitive,” which is T. C. Boyle’s story in the latest issue (July 4) issue of The New Yorker, and there’s also a discussion with him on the ethics of disease in the Page-Turner column on the web.
Ellen Bass has a poem (“The World Has Need of You”) on June 25 The Writer’s Almanac.
Donna Hilbert has a poem (“Neighbors”) you should read — it’s on Verse-Virtual.
Don’t forget about Kathleen Kirk’s blog (Wait! I Have a Blog?!) where she covers reading, writing, and related subjects (such as links to her latest publications, like this poem (“Crabapple Blooming”) in Poetry Porch). Also, Kathleen is the poetry editor for Escape into Life and there’s always good stuff there.
This week brought me some news I didn’t like to hear about the health of friends. My good thoughts go out to anyone struggling. I can’t always articulate how I feel. I was able to do some photography experiments and share two abstracts with you below.
I’ll be taking a few days off. Peace, love, and solace
