May 4, 2012: Super Moon Emerges
May 5: Zenith
May 6: Fare Thee Well, Super Moon
As you may have noticed, I dropped out for awhile. Too much going on. I have submitted a poetry chapbook for consideration in a contest or for publication if I'm not a prize winner. I have revised an article for inclusion in a collection of essays on the post-emancipation South. I have finished up a dismal spring semester at my university, in which I had no energy for teaching, but in which I did receive confirmation of tenure and promotion! And I wrote letters for my most promising major, who graduated with honors, including the university's Gold Medal award for overall leadership and academic excellence, and who now goes on to grad school! In short, the candle has been burning at both ends, and I am a fried pie. So I give you what I have: the moon, and a super one at that!
