Here's a photo from my recent visit in NYC--Starbucks, of course.
Not only did I get to read in Bryant Park, which was fabulous, I spent time with BFF Joseph Legaspi and his husband, David. So nice to spend a few hours with them.
That was Thursday. I drove back on Friday morning to be on the WGBH's show Boston Public Radio with the beautiful and talented Jill McDonough. We were contestants on a new quiz, of all things! I was a little ball of stress the whole time. Good thing Jill was there to pull me through. We also talked about Poetry on the T and UMass Boston's recent contribution to the project. Very cool!
Thanks to Jim Braude and Margery Eagan for taking it easy on us. You can check us out at the 1:30:30 mark.
Lastly, as if this week couldn't get any better, New England Review picked up two of my poems (thanks, C.Dale!). AND, a very cool poetry organization that sends out a poem a day is taking one of my poems. More to come.
This has been a terrific week! Can't wait to see what's in store for the rest of June.
