...to be named in the acknowledgements of this thesis! It's the first scholarly study on the poetry of Saskatchewan writer John V. Hicks. I downloaded the pdf last night and lo and behold, there my name was right beside The Dead Parrots. Wonderful!
This week flew by. My days have been long. The poems continue to come. My wall is now sheeted with them.
A large box arrived on Wednesday, a box full of poetry and nonfiction. I dug into the books right away. And, to top it off, on Wednesday night hockey season kicked off. I do my best writing during the regular season. I watched hockey Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (the Montreal-Buffalo game was awesome!) and I'll be on the couch again tonight for Hockey Night in Canada. This is my favourite time of year.
