Thursday, September 21


For presents like these:
(silk thread and shibori button clips for my short hair from Megan)

and this:
(beautiful wool-and-kimono-fabric scarf from Blair, for French winters--a bit of home)

and having time to finish my yellow-and-grey skirt, and even take photos before the light was gone:
(speaking of coats and coats, I am wearing my dad's mom's nursing cape with this outfit),

and to have editors who really know how to choose a book cover:

and for such kind people to leave such kind words for my big news. Thank you.


(Lucky life. Oh, lucky life./ Oh lucky lucky life. Lucky life.)

(And one more thank-you, to Gerald Stern. As always.)

Congrats on the book and the cover is great...simple and beautiful. Ive been wearing my shoes everyday since I got them. They are making me so happy. So far they've gone with 6 outfits. Thank you for creating them and bringing a little "girlie" to my otherwise boy filled life.

I'm a recent visitor to your blog (via Soule Mama) - and am sending you blessings and congratulatory karma through the autumn air. The cover is gorgeous. I don't often read poetry, but I'm buying your book, just for the cover.

That cover is stinkin' GORGEOUS!!!! I think in this case it is perfectly acceptable to judge a book by its cover.

It is absolutely beautiful and I am sure the poems inside are even more-so!! I put it in my wishlist immediately! Although, I would love to buy a copy signed by the artist, if that is ever an option!

Is that you? That is you, isn't it? Well, I can see where you get the lovely eyes for the girls you draw. They are all self-portraits a bit, eh?

Linda: pin-pon! right on. Thank you for the compliments. They are always self-portraits to some degree.
