Thanks! This looks great. I'll check it out. I love Keillor. And I've been catching up on your previous posts. Yea for your 2007 goals! CAn't wait to see you meet them. And please don't kill me, but I haven't read your MS yet. My week off got hectic with some unexpected family stuff. I promise I'll do it soon!

Happy New Year, Bug! Hope all is well with you. I have a poem to swap out so I'll send you the poem later tonight. Take your time with the MS.

These all look so interesting! I can't wait to check them out. I am stuck on a poem, so I will probably use the interviews to avoid the poem. Have you ever been stuck? Had what you thought was a great idea, then just couldn't get the words to do what you wanted them to? That's where I am. It's yukky!

Hate being stuck. Seems like I have a room at the stuck motel sometimes.

Good luck working through it. I read other poets when I get stuck. And I avoid working on the poem, hoping something will strike my fancy when I least expect it.
