During a dinner I had with Jay Udall, he said, "Writing poetry is dancing with the dwende," a line that has stuck with me since. Beyond just poetry, any creative act is ultimately based in the idea of reaching out and touching the mythical, of embracing the unknown and unknowable. This blog is about the dance.

Dang Students, Slowing Me Down
No writing Wednesday.
Thursday: 12:43-1:03 Worked on Cass.
Busy with student conferences and grading this week. It's been unexpectedly difficult to keep up. Fortunately, it's almost the weekend and I'll have some time for filling the gaps.
