I have such a thing for "bodysuits." They were really popular when I was in eighth grade, and I had many, many sexual fantasies about the girls who wore them in class right when my hormones were at full potency. They would wear them as a shirt under jeans, sometimes with / sometimes without a bra. Twenty years later, I can remember this vividly.

Then today...

Tryst of Fate

Well, I'm in a relationship now. (We've been dating for two weeks.)

Everything did, indeed, seem a little Disneyland for a bit and SPLASH here comes reality!

I have become, for the first time, ensnared in a conflict between two girlfriends.

Exhibit A.) I and S. flirted casually, but uncompellingly (for me), at a bar and on FB. S. thought that this might...

So many good things today.

Slept in and read Wuthering Heights for a while. So much better than I even remembered. Emily Brontë is a master of her art. Can't get enough of her exquisite composition.

Then I read that my publisher Caveworks Press just got an Iowa Arts Council grant to publish a noteworthy poet, Ray Young Bear. On top of being proud...

Argh!

I need to blog more!

Things are great. March started off wildly. I gave a reading to a full house at the Hearst Center for the Arts, and appeared in a couple of radio spots to promote said event.

Then a week later I played a twenty minute set as an opener for Americana great Brooks Strause at the Octopus in Cedar Falls. Great...

What? I've been on here almost a month, but haven't been blogging!

Today I felt useless and lethargic, but I really was semi-productive. I wrote a song and went for a run. Rest of the day spent on Facebook and Netflix, Wah Wah. Watching a lot of Portlandia.

Tomorrow, though, I'm super-busy! In the morning, I'm recording a radio spot to...
