Cat Photo and Other Things
From L to R: Wooden Cat Statue from Guatemala; Akhenaton, one of our three cats.
Akhenaton wakes me up every morning by rubbing his face along mine or jabbing his paw into my armpit. I can't explain.
A student of mine asked me where I get my news (because she liked "my viewpoints"). I told her I read a few different papers, but for online sources I highly recommend New America Media and IndyBay (for those in California). I also like NPR for general news.
My daughter is walking. It's fun around here.
I submitted my sabbatical proposal today. My wife and I both applied, so hopefully (!) we will both be approved and on sabbatical from teaching in Spring 2008. My proposal was to work on a second book, read in support of my first book, and to take on online course in Advanced Poetry. I should hear if we got accepted sometime around early December. If you can rub your rabbit's foot for me, I will take all the good luck you can muster.
OCHO #7 is now out. "Slowness," a new poem of mine, appears.
