I got a wonderful response to the good people at NYFA. Needless to say, I have yet to hear from the Dept. of Ed., and probably won't. You, dearest reader, probably think I'm making this stuff up -- or at least exaggerating, but I'm not. I cannot tell you how sick I am of going through this. Where to put this anger? How to be heard?
The good news is I saw my friend and old teacher William Olsen read tonight -- an absolutely brilliant poet. My manuscript is about 2 hours away from being done. I'm spent. Tommorrow Jeff & I will see our Peter. Yeah!
