o my gosh!

i just came home to the BEST MAIL in forever....

Apogee sent me Valerie Coulton'snew collection of poetry, THE CELLAR DREAMER!!! [so new that i can't find it on the apogee website yet... but maybe that's me just getting home from work and being tired-excited.]

do you know Valerie Coulton?

i do. i mean... she was in a class with me at state & i *LOVE* Valerie. her work & her. she's a phenomenal poet that uses space in a way that makes me feel that ... yes, absolutely.... feeling... that feeling i get when i read Anne-Marie Albiach... that deeply satisfying poetry feeling.

anyway. i am very excited to get this book & read it. YAY!

i also got another rejection letter.

see. i'm thinking... fine. last year... last year i got more acceptance letters than rejection letters & this just seems to be my year for rejections. fine. it's fine. really. REALLY. great.

I get ten rejections for every acceptance. I must be doing something wrong--or does that mean I'm doing something right?

maybe 9 editors are doing something wrong.
