Salt, loneliness and beauty

Strange how lonely Michigan gets in summer, the season everyone has been waiting for.
Returned from Chicago Tuesday, it was nice to get out for a bit anyway. Went to see Judson Claiborne play at a little tavern, then met an interesting and talented pianist named Daniel Knox and a poet named Thax Douglas. Christopher Salveter, aka Judson Claiborne will be joining us in NYC’s “Living Room” on September 13th. That show is going to be bursting with beauty…I look forward to it very much. My shopping list this evening was quite absurd, no doubt fueled by my isolation and love of salt; both of which will get to my heart at some point.

August issue is coming along very nicely, lots of wonderful poetry and discussions about poetry coming up.
