I started writing a new series of poems today. What does it feel like when writer's block ends? It feels like somebody has left a hot bowl of soup inside my doorstep on a freezing night. Soup & buttered bread. I feel grateful.
My poems have appeared in Dusie, Dogwood, The Pittsburgh Quarterly, Poetry Midwest, Moxie, Mind the Gap, the WTTW Chicago program "Arts Across Illinois" and other venues. I'm also an installation & book artist, a lecturer on typography & design, a proud mother and co-owner of an art studio. For many years I have been an activist for public art and the intelligent, apt use of form and language in public and private life. This space is for random thoughts and findings.
