Hey Sarah. Thanks for adding me as a friend after all this time. I hope things are going great for you. I've discovered something interesting, that I'm a better reader now than I was thirty years ago. But slower, and I need reading glasses. I'm fighting the impulse to re-read everything... naw, there's too much new stuff and everything I haven't gotten to yet.
Best to you!
So Sarah,
Did you by any chance know Greg Garrett when you attended Baylor? He taught Creative Writing there and ran the festivals.
an editor!

and a poet as well, Sarah?

i'd love to see a poem or two.

might this be a back door to the Cream City Review?

anyway, nice to meet you.
i notice that like me you chose to include Larry Levis' "Widening Spell of the Leaves" as one of yr 200 titles. If, as in my case, that's just a small percentage of yr library, it bespeaks something about the grace and poignancy of his work. (So far it seems only four of us know about it...) Larry's was the first and possibly only poetry reading I ever wept at.
it's fun to see the books we share
