Update

I've been so busy I've barely had time to write or check in. But my grandma is going to worry pretty soon. So here we go:

My last day at GQ Magazine is tomorrow and it's breaking my heart. But I'm very excited to be starting as the Creative Director of Travel + Leisure (on the advertising side) on July 7.

This is my last week in the office:



Also Jason Pendergraft and I made our first check for a song we sold on Guiding Light. It's the song I wrote for my grandparents on their 60th wedding anniversary. Grandma, you would have been proud: We spent the money on these giant frozen margaritas.




And it looks like my third book of poetry will be published by a good house soon. I can tell you more after I look at the contract!

So, that's the news that's fit to print.

More soon after I land safely in San Francisco with both of my brothers to lead me home to Sonoma.

I'm working on a new poem.

Oh and the new Four Square came and I'm in it!

And Abraham Smith just sent me random beautiful postcards with tidbits of poems on them. They weren't signed, but I can tell they're from him. Thanks Abe!

It was a good day for mail all around.

Here's to magic and luck!

Place your bets.
