New and Not-So-New Poetry

My poem "She Always Wears Blue" is up now in the new issue of Paradigm.

I also have five poems in the Winter issue of The Linnet's Wings which came out last month.

Doggy Danger

Emma got bit by a dog on Thursday night while we were delivering Girl Scout cookies. I never knew it was so dangerous taking cookies door to door.

She's okay. It's not a serious bite, but bad enough. Five punctures to her leg and lots of bruising.

It seems everyone has a dog bite story. My own involves a mother dog with puppies, a 10 year old (me) doing something really stupid, and my nose. Luckily it wasn't as bad as it could have been, and I learned several very important lessons about dogs and friendship.

I'm very busy

...delivering Girl Scout cookies (over 300 boxes!), volunteering at my kids' school, leading a Daisy troop, and generally having a life. Writing has been on the back burner for a couple of months, but I'm gearing up for a new 30/30 come March 1.

What have you been up to?
