November 2021

Tonight I’ll turn clocks back an hour and change my relationship to light for the coming months. I’m a morning person, now eager for early light to walk the dogs, write, prepare for each day. I don’t mind the longer evenings. We’re coming into a quiet season of more solitude, more creative time.

I’m celebrating the notions of harvest and fruition with readings and more recognition related to The Feast Delayed.

Creative writing faculty at St. Olaf gathered with community on campus on November 4 for a celebration of recent publications. I was in good company with colleagues Cole Bucciaglia and Jennifer Kwon Dobbs, and special guest reader William Pierce (Coeditor of Agni).

. . . And a reminder that books and literary journals are holiday gifts that can be read, shared, and donated.
