He’s Back

I had a great time visiting my parents. Some of the highlights: playing Mexican Train (a dominos game), going out on my parents’ boat, all the great food my parents fixed, seeing my mom’s artwork in the local gallery (it amazes me how she continues to improve in her oil paintings and watercolors), reading some science fiction, reading a fellow blogger’s chapbook, reading some more of Claudia Emerson’s Late Wife, catching up on my sleep, watching mindless TV, and stepping into the Atlantic Ocean on a beautiful day.

I didn’t do a lick of poetry writing while on vacation, but I plan to get back in the swings of things after work tonight. I was very surprised that there was no poetry news in the mail or e-mail.
