NEIGH! NEIGH! NEIGH! NEIGH!
My daughter will be 19 months old this month. She did something akin to Monty Python’s silly walk a couple weeks ago while my dad was visiting. She has also been talking for what feels like forever now, including her saying name, which she learned to do months ago. Here is a sample dialogue:
“Evie, what’s your name?”
“What’s Papa’s name?”
“What’s Mama’s name?”
“What’s Frankie’s [the dog's] name?”
You get the point. It’s adorable.
“Good Advice (IX)” has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Thanks to the fantastic editors of Gigantic Sequins for the nod!
“Good Advice (IX)” is now available in the newest issue of Gigantic Sequins. Thanks to the editors and fellow contributors for such a great issue!
Four excerpts from “Good Advice” — IV, VII, VIII, and XII — are forthcoming in Spittoon Magazine, 3.1. Thanks to the editors for giving these excerpts a great home!
Our daughter, Evelyn (Evie) Clare, was born at 5:01 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21. She came into this world weighing 7 pounds, 8 ounces and measuring 20.5 inches long. Baby and mother are happy and healthy!
I can’t think of anything more to say other than the fact that she is absolutely perfect.
“Good Advice (IX)” will appear in issue 4.1 of Gigantic Sequins.
“Good Advice” (VI) is forthcoming in the September 2012 issue of decomP magazinE.
“Poem for Talking Dirt” is in the Spring 2012 issue of The Adroit Journal, with a substantial portion of the sales proceeds going toward the Acumen Fund, which has a mission of making it so that “one day every human being will have access to the critical goods and services they need – including affordable health, water, housing, energy, agricultural inputs and services – so that they can make decisions and choices for themselves and unleash their full human potential.”
