Farewell for a While

I am exiting stage left. I've run out of things to say here---hence, the long list of music videos that follows (I always wanted to be a DJ). I've enjoyed blogging (for the most part) and am grateful to have met many nice & talented writers. I hope our paths will cross at a poetry reading someday soon. Please stay in touch.

I may be back. But I have quite a few things ahead that will be cause for celebration, work, and enjoyment---I am going on sabbatical in Spring 2008 to work on a second book (we will be spending about four months in Asia); we have a summer trip planned for Guatemala; my first book comes out in June of this year; and my website will go online around May 1, so I hope you will come by for a visit. The website will feature reviews of my book, a few sample poems, a calendar of readings, and photographs of me in Bolivia, Cambodia, South Korea, and other countries I have had the good fortune to visit.

Come May, I will be here--- www.leeherrick.com---and I hope to see you.

Peace.
