Blizzard Is a State of Mind…
Claude Cahun — “I Am in Training: Don’t Kiss Me”
On the day after the blizzard of ’09 rushed up the coast and swallowed us fluffy white frio, Verse Daily has posted a poem from my new forthcoming book (to appear in days)!
“State of a Nation” speaks of things…
Blizzard is a state of mind! That’s outside the body…
“Pray don’t talk to me about the weather, Mr. Worthing. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else. And that makes me so nervous.”- Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, Act 1

A fave from Slaves To Do…
I feel like I’m cheating when I understand your
hooks n zags. I’ve been on arctic walks..
snowed in with notes and jots. How to process..
Things that were down are slowly bobbing up
a bit. 2010 might be alright.
Glad to read it, Jim! Enjoy your turn o’ the year!
Hi Amy! Thanks for the intro to Claude. I’d never heard of her. So many extraordinary people have walked this planet…and you’re one of them! So glad to share it with you. Happy 2010!
The pleasure is mine, Wendy Babiak! I’m going to be in touch even more now that there’s a new year unfolding!! Happy second day of the year!
