The Pet Blogger

I can't remember where I read it, but somewhere I read a rant about poets who blog too much about their pets. You're either an animal person or not. And with pugs, well, they are similar to Jeeps...if you don't have one, you might not quite understand.

In any case, I do think I need to blog more about writing. I think about writing so much that I rarely write about it. I should.

At the same time, if you want to see my work, you can check out the journals I have listed to the right. I love reading a variety of blogs and I especially love reading blogs about the poetic craft.

So I apologize about the dog pictures and nonsense, but I know you sorta like it too.

I am a real poet, I swear. The way I look at it is like this. I need a space where I can be gushy about Telemachus and Edith. This blog helps me keep that sentimentality out of my work. Okay, well once in a while it seeps into my work. But these dogs provide me with so much love and entertainment that I can't keep it all to myself.

Was this in celebration of Talk Like A Pirate Day?

I re-read Flannery O'Connor's essay "King of the Birds" last night, and I'd say you have no reason to apologize.

No, Karen, I didn't even know of such a thing. It is just my pre-Halloween madness.

John-I haven't read that, but she is my favorite short story writer of all time.

And, I saw that you dressed up your gorgeous little one. You can get away with that since he is human:)
