Default More water!!

Though it looked like I might have to evacuate a second time in two days, it now looks like the fire in my neighborhood is out. In 2008, I did have to evacuate two days in a row! For anyone who hasn't heard, wild fires are trying to turn Los Angeles to toast, including my area, Sylmar, and where I lived for thirty years, Bel Air.

Stay safe, Ralph. I hope the wildfire stays away from your neighborhood.

I just had the pleasure of having one of my poems adapted as a song by a very talented music student at my university, Paul Schell. The lyrics were from my villanelle "The Demon Lovers," though he used just three stanzas and included repetitions of certain lines other than the ones that repeated in the villanelle. It is strange but also wonderful to hear your own words in a whole new creation that takes the work in totally unforeseen directions. Ironically, the villanelle itself was inspired by rock music, but the song is more like a contemporary lieder.

A little personal, but... I'm seeing someone for the first time since splitting with my wife a year and a half ago. It's probably too early to call it a "relationship" yet, and I keep worrying that I'll jinx it...but it seems to be headed that way. It's astonishing to realize just how much I missed having a special someone in my life.
