First off, lovely poem by Jennifer Chang.


Secondly, we've had quite an eventful week at my wooded retreat. The first of two fall storms hit the area, downed trees, and naturally, downed power lines.

Our home had no power Monday evening to Tuesday afternoon, and I graded many of my papers by candlelight. It was oh so poetic.


I've got lots of letters of recommendation to craft. If you're a student and you're reading my blog, know that I won't even begin to start writing these letters until the Thanksgiving Break. Because of early registration, I'm backed up with a bunch of advising responsibilities, but if you asked for a letter of rec., and I agreed to write one for you, rest assured it will get written and sent out on time.


I need to get back to the writing desk. I'm feeling the urge, which is good, but the urge always comes when I have a finite amount of time.


For those of you who expressed an interest in the broadsides, I've got a number of copies of "If, Given."


It snowed last night in the foothills. It's L's second snow. He didn't know quite what to think.

Yes! I'd like to get a copy of the broadside, please.

Could you backchan costs and p/u arrangements when you get a chance?
