Welcome to the new incarnation of my continuing blog. As you can see, there is not much difference between my last blog and this one. I think I am a little better at putting things together and getting the word out on things I want the world to know, and I think I will be better at organization and a consistent output, which I think has slowed down to a pace I can better handle.
I also want to concentrate on a few specific themes in this blog. Of course I will still be talking about poetry (in a more positive light than my previous blog) and my career as a teacher, but I think I want to have more discussion in the realm of craft and poetics than I previously have. My latest choice of projects (a narrative book on my home town) has put into contrast some of my limitations as a poet and I want to go ahead and make a conscious, observable effort to get better.
You will notice the blog roll to the right is not entirely complete as my last blog's was. If you are a new reader and want your blog added to my roll, go ahead and leave me a link. If your blog was left off and you want it back on, do the same.
I really do want this new blog to be a better place than my last blog. I want more people to come and share in the discussions and I want to be a better host.
