happy news

well, i've been hiding this under my hat for a bit.
i've been selected to do
a residency at terraphilia.
terraphilia is a beautiful word
coined by susan tweit and her late husband richard cabe
(who liked my rock books)
terraphilia is in salida, colorado,
and the residency is a place to stay and work.
i will go there after school is out.
and the other piece of news is also grand:
travel money, so i can travel to and from,
rent a car, and be in the mountains for two weeks.
i am very grateful to susan and to the sda.
i am really, really excited!
