Woops: A Time Capsule

Two straight weeks of my Friday posting regimen and then nuthin'. That's sort of the way when I make sweeping pronouncements that only matter to me...
Last Friday I would have told you these same two things:

1. I am trying to create new work. Some of it prose. I am in that state where I have forgotten how to create new work, but I am wildly interested in the work of others. It's fun torture. Please wish me luck.

2. If you are sad to know the Imaginary Press Reading Series has run its course, please know there is a Pocket Lab Reading Series around. It's going to be good.

I Share this E-Mail in Case You Want in on the Discussion

Dear Paula:

As someone who has previously contacted our office to share your thoughts on issues important to you, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to participate in a live statewide healthcare tele-town hall meeting this Sunday, August 23 rd , at 7:00 PM. Along with people like you from across the state, I will be joined by Dr. Denis Cortese, CEO of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, and Mary Wakefield, the highest ranking nurse in the federal government. The three of us will discuss the need for health care reform, including ways to make the American health care system more affordable and more stable, and I will answer as many questions as I can from citizens from around the state.

If you would like to participate in this important discussion, the only way to guarantee your involvement is to visit our website at Once you’re registered, you’ll get an automated reminder phone call on Friday evening and you’ll be called again on Sunday to be joined to the call. The phone number you provide will be kept private.

If you have any questions, you can call the office toll free at 1-888-224-9043.

I look forward to hearing from you on Sunday.

Three Months a long time to go post-less. I will begin updating on Fridays. I've got to believe I have at least that much going on. I've got to.

Here's a placeholder in the meantime:
