Where I've Been



In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been lately (though I hope this hasn’t been your dear caste of mind) I am presently in Geneva, New York where I spoke about Emily Dickinson and blindness last evening. Last week I was in Moscow, Idaho where I taught creative nonfiction to an especially talented group of graduate students although I also absorbed some odd right wing “juju” which I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I wrote about this sad, aleotoric anti-magical ennui at the “Split this Rock” anti-war poetry blog. See:

  1. Oh dangit, Steve, I again missed you in Geneva. Even out here in Lancaster it’s still not that far a drive. Give a gal some advanced warning next time.
    Me, I’ve been busier than a three-legged cat on a hot tin roof, and my computer died, and on and on and on.
    Did you get to see Mary Blew in Idaho???


  2. I did not think they allowed “your kind” in the good red state of Idaho. This line is a bastardized version of what an Idaho state trooper once told me. “My kind” was the wheelchair variety human that apparently did not belong as it was suggested I stay one night and move on. Moscow is a very interesting town and Idaho is a very beautiful and scenic state. The politics of the residents however is not amendable to difference.
