It's a small world, and a wonderful one, too.
All thorns & no grace
My grandmother called today. She always has to call me, because every time I try calling her, nobody is home. It's wonderful. My grandparents are 85 and have more of a social life than I do. However, it does result in a lot of muttering on my part when I attempt to contact them at least once or twice a week and end up getting the answering machine. Ergo, I must always wait for them to call me. Pensioners these days!

Anyway, my grandmother called, and she was telling me about how a longtime family friend of ours, Alicia, met a woman who's a poetry aficionado. Alicia told her that her friend Doris's granddaughter is a writer, and the woman said, oh, where can I find her? So they went on YouTube, and Alicia showed her the clip of me reading at Fringe last year in August. And the woman said, "She's an amazing poet—where can I find her book?" Which isn't out yet, but I'll refer her to my chapbook.

Tech-savvy seniors! Readers across the age gap! What'll they think of next?

This is brilliant! I've listened to you read 'Snap' three times now. I love the epistemological uncertainties - the modus of the dream, the unreliable father-muse, the poem within the poem, the use of a double lens, of a camera snapping a camera obscura -- both substitutes for eyes as well as metaphors, models for them. Just -- fantastic. Your reading brought across an indescribable number of layers; fear, breathlessness, resignation. I think this is enough to finally entice me into getting a Paypal account, for all I can think of is how much I'd like to read the chapbook!

PayPal is my favorite way to shop/order things online, honest to goodness - it's so easy to use. And I've never faced anything resembling fraud or what-have-you, so I'm convinced it's quite safe (seeing as I've been using it pretty much weekly since 2001). I'd offer to send you a copy, but I've run out and have to order more myself! Fortunately, I get them at half-cost...

I like projects with a unique slant. This is definitely one of them!
