Heat Wave

I don’t have to tell most of my readers that it has been hot, hot, HOT! Rumor has it that thunderstorms and a mini cold front are supposed to move through the area today and cool things down a bit.  I hope so.  I have a hard time writing when my fingers stick to the keyboard.

This past week I drafted two poems.  I’m also preparing to take a class with Marjorie  Maddox at Chautauqua.  I’m rather excited about working with Marjorie — I discovered her work some time ago when I picked up a book she edited (along with Jerry Wemple) titled Common Wealth: Contemporary Poets on Pennsylvania.  Many anthologies come and go from my bookshelf, but this particular title is here to stay.  The focus of her workshop?  Poetry of place.  Yep, one of my favorite subjects!
