My brother is engaged! Congratulations Alec and Miranda! The proposal happened yesterday. I wish I could be there to celebrate with them. They are currently living in Austin, Texas where they have been the last couple of years. They will be moving to the Des Moines area in Iowa in two or three weeks.

I found out that the third issue of The Alarmist which includes a poem of mine will be on sale in the UK and Europe starting in mid-September. It will be available internationally starting in October.

The day the issue launches there will be a release party in London.

It looks like it will be a great event! I would love to attend, but I will be in northeast Ohio. Sigh.

Anyway, Happy Labor Day Weekend!

P.S. Just found out The Alarmist is now available in over 200 stores internationally and you can also order it online. 

P.P.S. I don't have a facebook account or a twitter account. I have this blog and my website. Just sayin'. Some people have asked. And you know... Beware of the catfishing epidemic.

I'm feeling a bit better! I'm still experiencing some physical pain and I definitely still need to rest more than usual, but I'm glad I'm improving.

Poem Forthcoming in Ping-Pong

Just found out I had a poem accepted by Ping-Pong: The Literary Journal of the Henry Miller Library.


You can read more about the journal here and here.


I'm grateful that the results of my MRI were good/normal.

Still resting and recovering.
