since many friends know about this blog -- I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm running VERY late with my e-mail replies. Husband is sick and has been prescribed a liquid diet for at least a week. I'm spending most of my time in waiting rooms, answering phone calls and cleaning the juicer rather than juicing itself.
And, as if things couldn't get any worse, my plantarium is doomed and overrun with molds. Booohooooo!! I will snap a pic as soon as I have a bit of time. It's one of those things, like the Frog Prince, that everyone (especially Michi) has *got* to see.
• Eclectica accepted my word poem, Weather-wise for their April 1st issue. Very nice and professional online journal -- with some fabulous poetry -- which makes it always a thrill to be part of the bunch.

• Noo Journal accepted my poem, Swirling calling it "a wonderfully meditative anecdote with some great language." The editor is simply terrific -- gave me some great suggestions on some cuts to make on the poem... so if it's looking good, I owe it to Mike Young.

Annette Marie Hyder asked me some weeks ago to make a "photoem" for her project Facing Feminism: Feminists I Know.
The photoem is now available here. As I told Annette, the dog looks much better than me in the picture, but she does own more than my share of the room -- and so, has all the right to look her best. Hee.
