Looming Deadlines

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.  Isn’t that the old saying?  Today, after a big melt and some flooding, it’s cold, but sunny.  Hopefully, we won’t have any more surprise snowstorms this year!

This March I am under deadlines.  Not deadline.  Not just one.  Nope.  But many deadlines.  I am behind with a book review that I need to send off in a week or so.  I am presenting at a conference at the end of the March, and I have only started to put that presentation together.  Plus, I am presenting at another conference in April — and no, I haven’t even thought about that presentation, yet.

Still, I have two deadlines (self-imposed) I am looking forward to…yesterday in the mail I received my copy of Robert Peake’s collection, Human Shade (published as part of the Lost Horse Press New Poets Series) and Brian Spears’ A Witness in ExileI want to have them both read by the weekend — now that is my kind of deadline!



  1. March is entering like a lamb here–sunny, warmer. But February was exiting like a lion over the weekend with hail. Best wishes with all the deadlines!

  2. Happy reading! I reviewed Brian’s book a few days back, and I just got Robert’s as well. Looking forward to hearing what you think.
