I Like this by Scott Garson. I like things like this.
I am reading tonight at Philz in the Mission on 24th and Folsom. I hope you can come to see me read all new stuff. Maybe some stuff that you like even.
I somehow managed to sleep for most of the day today. That is very weird. I was just barely able to get Ninja Town postmarked. I love the post office sometimes. Running down the cold street with a manila envelope covered with Gerald Ford's face because I like stamps with pictures of people on them. Gerald Ford was never elected. The post man said, no problem, our truck hasn't left yet. I bowed graciously and thanked him emphatically. This package is very important to me. We'll take care of it.
Perhaps one of my favorite presses, Futurepoem Books will elect to publish The Haunting of Ninja Town by Jack Morgan. They published Rachel Levitsky's book, which I like very much. I want to write a review of it for Rain Taxi. Maybe they will elect to publish that, too.
I picked up those charity posters I did for Connecting Through Dance today. One of my favorite things is when someone gets something printed in color, and they are really happy. Feels like I won an election. People always thank me emphatically when I finish a print job. Makes me feel good. I do a lot of work for free; sometimes people want to pay me when I don't want them to. I tell them that I do it for smiles and thank yous.
Smiles and thank yous are very important to me.
