Really thrilled to be sharing space with Sarah in this classy 'zine, too!

Stand Magazine has also accepted 4 poems: Frog Oral Cavity: A Random Dissection of Wednesday, He drafted, Rehearsal and Falling into a Manhole is Considered Lucky in a future issue, sometime in 2007. I'm quite ecstatic. I used to read copies of Stand at the British Council back then... never imagined I could get in!

In fact, I'd already given up on them (see response time below):

Boxcar Poetry Review is featuring two pictures I took at the Central Cemetery in Vienna in their March 2007 issue. Wheeeeee!! Here's a thought bubble:

• And last but not the least, I became a second-time aunt to the thirstiest baby girl in the East on March 5. She feeds almost every hour or two... breast milk and formula. Totally ravenous.

Five things I'm excited about

• Having the picture I took in Vienna's Central Cemetery featured in the March 2007 issue of Stirring.

• Being part of Bob Marcacci's THE COUNTDOWN #20 at miPOradio.

• Placing 1st and 3rd in Tattoo Highway's "A Picture Worth 500 Words" contest.

• Having two oldish poems, Nothing Heavier Than Silence and Lessons in Scrying Sarcoma in the Spring 2007 issue of flashquake. Michi received 2nd place in the "fib" contest here — so that's a double yay!

• And last, but not the least, waiting for my sis-in-law to give birth to her baby anytime now.
