I looked at the TOC and noticed that Amit Majmudar is in there as well. Congrats to all three of them!

Well, my new Audio-Technica tri-speed turntable is rolling nicely, playing the greatest vinyls in New York State as they are meant to be played. What a great bit of fresh air! (As often, I have a video link ballast: listen to a real pro. Hi, mom.)

I’ve had a collection of 7 of my translations of Classical Chinese verse accepted by”Metamorphoses: a Journal of Translation” and it looks like we may finally have agreed on editorial matters. Also, I just had the most amazing wine. And my cousin is having a baby.

Great news all round, Alex.

But I'm intrigued by the amazing wine!
Red, White or Rosé? Country of origin, or better still, a name.

That's wonderful, Alex. Metamorphoses is a top venue for translation.

Just came back from a trip to Japan and now want a hot springs rock pool for my birthday. My husband caught seven brown trout yesterday, and an otter stole one and released two--the rest are dinner. In poetry news, I recently had a request to publish a book that I was wondering where to send...

Lovely to read such a variety of good news. Wise Jayne.

I recently learned that one of my poems in the the next National Geographic children's poetry anthology in 2018 will share a page with a poem by Timothy Murphy, a happy coincidence since Tim was instrumental in encouraging my children's poetry here at the Sphere when I started writing it about 12 years ago. (Both our poems are about North Dakota, which explains their placement).

Congratulations, Roger! I do think children are by and large more open to poetry than their elders, since they haven't yet been told that they don't like it.
