Today included, but was not limited to: being blown off by a more established, Seattle-based writer; finding out some disappointing gossip about people behaving badly when they should have known better; weeping uncontrollably while attempting to figure out how to format the page numbers on my thesis according to the graduate school's rather convoluted guidelines; a rejection from Alaska Quarterly; and teaching ENEX 101.
But I've forgotten about all that now. Why? Because two of my poems were just accepted by Phoebe. God Bless you, Phoebe. I kiss your knees.
