Pushcart Nomination for Coventina

My poem Coventina has been nominated for a Pushcart. I’m delighted. Thrilled. And really, really late posting about it. I received the email from O.P.W. Fredericks, the editor of The Lives You Touch Publications nine days ago. This particular poem is very near and dear to my heart and I’m so happy people are enjoying it.

Why didn’t I post about it sooner? I’ve been a little busy. In the last few weeks, I’ve battled a leaky roof, dance rehearsals, a recital squeezed into the smallest stage I’ve ever seen, sick kids, field trips, shopping, xmas lights and tree decorating, huge dead tree removal, moving a kid to a new room, moving furniture to another room, parties, cooking, painting various parts of the house, cleaning, and etc. I could go on ad nauseum about the craziness that is my life this year but it’s actually kind of unbelievable. I think it will all calm down by January 17, 2012. That’s going to be the awesomest Tuesday EVER.
