Dear colleagues,
I was recently delighted to learn that The Hudson Review has taken "Coffee," the first time I've placed a poem there. The poem probably won't appear for a while, but I didn't want to wait for its publication to say that I owe a big thanks to everyone here for your astute and generous criticism, which was so helpful to me in improving the poem! I deeply appreciate your help and encouragement.

Tony

I congratulate Tony and commiserate with Mike. I publish frequently in THR, but most everything they take is rewrites of failed poems I wrote in my twenties!!! Grrr.

Tony: Wonderful news! So far the only response I've had from them, besides form-letter rejections, was a bill for fumigating their editorial offices...

Thanks, Tim and Richard! It's certainly true for me that even when I've been standing out in the rain all afternoon, the lightning usually doesn't strike.

Clive, Alex, Robert, I appreciate the good words. The Sphere has been a real help and stimulus to me as I've tried to "get back in the game."
