So, I'm stranded here. Well, not actually, but ATA went out of business and I had to shell out some mighty clams to find a ticket home on Monday. But that means my vacation has been extended, which IS VERY nice.
I've updated my website this morning while looking at the waves. New readings and reviews on there.
As for National Poetry Month Write More Challenge. This is the first year where I haven't done it. I have been keeping a journal and writing everyday, but not posting. I MIGHT change my mind. Mainly I miss writing with Jennifer L. Knox. She was my teammate for this shinding all the past years, but now, Miss Fancy Pants is writing beautiful poems this month on BLOOF BOOKS while the girls are on tour. Go see them! Say hi and bring them presents.
And Happy Birthday Deb Stein (one of my favorite people, and one of my favorite designers). You can buy me something here Bonbon Oiseau.

But in the mean time. I watch the waves, look out for sharks, and do some homework in the sand.
