I recently had blast recording a selection of my poems from Dharma Rain (as well as some newly published and some previously unpublished work) for David Juda's Voetica in Jim Helman's Hypercussion Studio in Berkeley. Here's the LINK.

​I was delighted to hear from Crosswinds Poetry ​(Website) that my poem, "Parrots," will appear in their May Issue, and that it is in contention for their 2020 poetry contest, judged by Richard Blanco. Also a shout-out to mentee Elizabeth Oxley (Website) for her poem also being accepted and being considered in their contest as well.
