Updates, Fun with Tractors, & Laura Rodley’s Rappelling Blue Light.

I have at long last customized my picture in the header above — what you see now is the actual honest-to-goodness Glacial Potholes in Shelburne Falls, right down the street from us. Or, in Vincent’s nomenclature, simply “The Waterfalls.” I took this photo just before twilight, “bug time”, this evening.

Also of great excitement tonight is the appearance of a gigantic tractor, a big digger, parked just outside our door — construction is beginning on our street on Monday, so I guess in front of our building seemed as good a spot to park it as any. Vincent is just beside himself, he thinks it’s his now.

It's mine, my very own oh my gosh tractor!
It's mine, my very own oh my gosh tractor!
A boy's work is never done.
A boy's work is never done.

And lastly I wanted to spotlight Laura Rodley’s beautiful new chapbook, now available for pre-order on Finishing Line Press. Laura’s about the dearest poet I know — buy her book!
