Taking a break

Slowly working my way through Maxine Kumin's essays in Always Beginning, Essays on a life in poetry (2000, Copper Canyon Press) - not always understanding. An introduction to two poets whom I shall read soon: Frost and Wallace Stevens.

No writing on my part, except for this blog. Nothing new since One Red Sofa was sent out, though some unfinished poems which were set aside are calling out... The weather is good for gardening.

Am reading PD James' latest detective story, (2008, The Private Patient, Faber and Faber). She spins a good yarn, her characters are a little old-fashioned, but am absorbed nevertheless, though wanting to cross out some of the adjectives.

It's good to have a change. Next week I start on the next project, fun.
