It's been a busy week, but I have been reading. I loved your interview with Janet Wong. She is such a wonderful poet and so down-to-earth. I'm amazed at the range of things she has written about. I have not seen that book of poems on superstitions. I must look for it!

Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for linking to my posts this week. Today's installment is finally up! (We had art school this morning, so it took me a while to write today.)
