2. My niece did a great job in a staged reading of a new play at Knox College last night. She played a boy! Wow! Congrats to the student writers, actors, and directors in the Playwrights' Workshop at Knox!
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I worked as an actor, wrote for an encyclopedia, edited a literary magazine, and taught college English courses. Now I write poetry, blog "eight days a week," and listen to birdsong.
