July was such a lousy month I almost forgot my August post. High points: my oldest and dearest friends are priceless. Typing/editing Rosebud… is still happening. I have covers for two books, blurbs for the novella. I’m getting physical therapy for my neck (displaced vertebra? ouchie) so I don’t clonk out at 4pm from muscle relaxers then lie awake til 4am. That totally sucked.
It’s an excellent prose jag, but I miss poetry. There’s a reading, with the theme “Place” at the JP library* on Sedgwick next Thursday, August 15. 6:15 sign-up for the open mic. The reading is 7-8ish. Hosts: Beatrice Greene and Carolyn Gregory (both JP poets!).
*Orange Line to Forest Hills, then hop the #39 bus – it’s only a few stops. There’s a big brick municipal building on the corner of Sedgwick and South St. Failproof method: When the bus starts to curve onto Centre St, ring the bell and walk back.
