Charles Wright on PBS

"I used to imagine...that language could lead us inexplicably to grace as though it were geographical." - Charles Wright

Be submissive

Poet Karyna McGlynn offers some really good tips for submitting your stuff. Read and follow. I was lucky enough to be in the same MFA program with her and she's a really awesome poet. She's also been published pretty much everywhere, so this lady knows what she's talking about.

Jane Goodall books for kids

I love Jane Goodall. I really can't think of a better hero for a kids' book, which makes me very happy about Me...Jane by Patrick McDonnell and The Watcher by Jeanette Winter.

The video below, in which McDonnell says about Goodall, "She has the mind of a scientist but the heart of a poet," is a good intro to both books. You should buy them for me.
