Happy 4th




New Poems 

It's always exciting to be recognized by those you deeply admire, which is exactly what happened to me this month. John Hoppenthaler, the curator of the Poetry Congeries at Connotation Press included three of my poems in this month's edition

John includes his thoughts, as well as an interview--this month with David Biespiel


A few thoughts to start July

On Dance:

"When choreography doesn't sustain some developing view of the people dancing it, it dwindles into attention-seizing stunts." --Alistair Macaulay, The New York Times

On Writing:

"Writers end up chasing their white whales, like it or not." Steve Almond, Bad Stories

On Music:

"Music and life are inseparable. Music is part of our physical and intellectual formation." --Ben Ratliff, Every Song Ever

On Narrative Medicine:

"Our patients' stories are not objects that we can comprehend or master, but rather dynamic entities we can approach and engage with." Rita Charon, Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine

On Faith:

"There were different kinds of prayer and different kinds of belief and he might be able to figure all that out someday, but not yet." Silas House, Southernmost
