Sarah's coming home from cold, cold Fairbanks

Daughter Sarah is coming home for a two week visit.  We pick her up at the Charlotte airport tomorrow night (tonight, technically, since it’s after midnight now).

According to my phone, here’s the weather forecast where she lives, in Fairbanks Alaska:

Here’s the forecast here in Salisbury:

She’ll probably be walking around barefoot, complaining about the heat and humidity.

It sure will be nice to see her and be with her.

3 Plays in North Carolina Literary Review

The 2009 issue of the North Carolina Literary Review just came out and three of my short plays are in it: Love Poem, Responsibility, and Ignition Switch.

I’m guessing most libraries in NC subscribe to this journal. They did such a nice job with layout and art.

Also included in the NCLR is an essay called Recovering “moral and sexual chaos” in Tennessee Williams’s Clothes for a Summer Hotel, by Annette J. Saddik.

This brings me to my point (stretching it, though the backdoor):

Like Blanche, who “always depended on the kindness of strangers,” I’m also much indebted, honored, and completely grateful to the editor, Dr. Margaret D. Bauer, and the other editors and staff — all strangers — who somehow picked these three plays. Obviously, this is a fine journal and an enormous project, and they made my little scribbles look really nice in print.
