I think I've almost recovered from the move. I have bruises on my arms and legs, which I just noticed today. Little souvenirs of the weekend. I started putting holes in the wall last night, getting my books back in order and moving boxes to the storage closet. By this weekend, things should be back to normal.
Congratulations to my good friend Cecilia Woloch, whose chapbook, Narcissus has just won the Tupelo Press Snowbound Chapboook Award. I've heard some of these poems and they are fantastic! Not sure of a publication date yet, but I'm guessing first of 2007.
Both the Java Monkey and Art Amok slam teams are enroute to the National Poetry Slam in Austin, which kicks off Wednesday night. Break a leg, guys!
