Within Reach has Arrived


Much to my surprise, the first box of books arrive yesterday. I was sent a notice that they were coming by UPS and I could track them by code, but I didn't get a chance to see where they were on the road from Cincinnati to Hamlin. In an eyeblink, the box landed on my porch, in my mudroom, into kitchen, and last night opening the book was a thrill-- so lovely.

It's really real-- Within Reach-- here in my hands.

Now the ongoing task of setting up readings, which I'm looking forward to doing. Traveling to see many poets and friends who are a big part of this. So if you see me with a big grin
and spring in my step, you'll know why. I just received a double dose of happiness.

Thank you, Cherry Grove Collections!
