Well, it’s now August and it seems that I have taken the entire summer off from this blog. I’ve been reading. Reading books for pleasure. Reading books for projects I have going. Reading tourist information signs. Reading the slush pile for a chapbook contest. Reading magazines from 1942. I even read a manuscript that was a hybrid of poetry and recipes for a fellow writer.
I have also been looking at art this summer. I saw Ray Turner’s portrait show Population. I saw the fantastic show Man Ray | Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism. I saw several pieces of graffiti that I liked. I saw how when the water bends the rocks around it into sand is also a kind of art.
I am slowly, slowly working on an interview with a poet, whose work I love. How have you spent the summer months?
