Happy New Year's

I received a copy of the GOOP newsletter today, an undertaking of the actress, Gwyneth Paltrow ( a personal favorite-- and her husband-- Chris Martin of Coldplay-- isn't too shabby either.). At any rate, this issue features cocktails from some of the top bartenders. They look fun to make an even more fun to drink, so I am passing the link along for all the responsible adults to enjoy! (Yikes, do I know any responsible adults?)

I hope everyone has a wonderful celebration and a year full of good things!

P.S. One of my favorite movies featuring Gwyneth Paltrow is "Proof." I also read the play on which the film is based, which was amazing. Anthony Hopkins plays her father, a mentally ill but brilliant mathematician. Paltrow's character questions her own sanity while caring for him. And there is a love interest played by Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Livelihood of Crows

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Mayapple Press has decided to publish my second collection of poems. Look for the new collection sometime late in 2010 or early 2011. I had an amazing experience with Mayapple on the release of my first collection, "Forms of Intercession," and I look forward to the opportunity to work with both Judy and Amee again.
