Well, today, in the midst of the Write-On (can't we have a Read-Off?), I have been taking care off the last (but not least) odds and ends, including stuff I just haven't been able to think about until now. This would include the mass mailing to my distant friends and family letting them know about my past year. In that mailing I asked for people to send me their phone numbers and so forth, so I'd have updated info for all of them. In case you didn't get the mailing and you fall into friends and family category (LS peeps were excepted from the mailing) please send my your e-mail, phone, address, etc.
I also want to draw everyone's attention to two new poetry blogs. The first is from an old friend of mine who is just now dusting off some work; Cave Writing can be read here: http://writingfromthecave.blogspot.com/ and is on the blogroll to your right. The second, The Suburban Ecstasies, http://sethabramson.blogspot.com/ is the blog of my old friend, The Third Son, for whom I have enormous respect as an activist, thinker, lawyer, and poet. It's both a law and a poetry blog and thus appears in both sections. That would be the only blog to do so thusfar.
You may have noticed that I don't link to a lot of blogs - there are some blogs that link to hundreds of writing sites (more power to them), but I try to limit my linking to either the very big sites (so that casual readers might be able to expore the law or poetry blogs via them) or to sites I like to read myself, for a number of reasons. Generally my standard is very high, and so I hope you check out both the Cave and the Esctasies and enjoy what they have to offer.
