Final grades have been posted, last minute Christmas presents have been purchased, and now, I am reading through the latest issue of Arsenic Lobster which features two of my poems, along with work by Carol Berg, Deborah Gang, C.C. Russell, and Jill Khoury (There are also some great "horridscopes" posted by Susan Yount, Editor and Publisher of Arsenic Lobster!)
As I prepare for the holiday festivities, I am hoping that we will miss the winter ice storm that seems to be coming our way. But, if we can't travel, maybe Anthony and I will sneak off to watch the final Hobbit movie at the nearby movie theater. Regardless of the weather, I do see a hobbit in my future as Anthony is a huge fan and I can never talk him into waiting for the movie to come out on DVD.
Stay tuned! After the holidays, I will be posting a recap of my best reads of the year including a list of best poetry collections and a list of best novels written by women.
May everyone have a safe and happy holiday!
