Submitting Poems and Other Random Thoughts

The warmer than normal winter has turned into a cooler that normal early spring. But I have still gotten to bike a few times. In February I biked five times. In March so far… four.

I continue sending poems out to magazines, e-zines, and journals for publication. My goal is to make at least one submission a week. I have been averaging two.

This week I also submitted a chapbook manuscript of 25-ish pages to a contest. The first time I have done that. I will keep you posted here when (and if) something is accepted.

My week of Tuning Out has turned into two and a half. In the past couple of days, I have dipped in every now and then, but never for long. It has done wonders for my mood to ignore Trump and his ignorant army. It has let me think about other things. I would recommend it as a strategy to all who are unnerved or depressed by Trump’s relentless assault on Truth.

Yesterday Sue and I went to a wonderful production of Macbeth. It is a reminder that corruption is endemic with those who seek political power. It is also a reminder that the wages of such civic sin is, inevitably, death.

I continue working my way through Ulysses and The Road to Assisi. I have a couple of Westerns in the works that I will be reviewing here at some point.

Another winter is coming to an end, and I am still reading and writing.
