It's been a while...

So it's now nearly August, my basil plants seem to be thriving and the rosemary is still green. The garlic bulbs have grown shoots and gone a bit brown but they're still too young and small to dig up, so I think harvest-time will come in a few more seasons.

I have also gotten two poetry submissions together for literary magazines. Three poems each, I have submitted one set to
Weave magazine, a great small-press magazine to which I just began subscribing; and the second set I plan to submit to Ecotone, a university-press journal (to which I am also a recent subscriber) with the awesome tagline: "reimagining place." How cool is that? I am hopeful but I don't expect publication. We'll see. This may be my lucky break.

I was also recently offered to come aboard the newly-created Chestertown Book Festival, to be known as
ChesBookFest. I was nominated to the position of secretary of the official planning committee and I have to say that I am very excited to be a part of this huge and well overdue project. Check out the above blog link for a little more info on the festival.

It's been quite a productive summer, I think.
