So the remainder of July slipped stealthily down the rabbit hole, but I am still here and have not been submerged just yet.  Some personal things (very good things) seem a little surreal & dreamy sometimes, but other endeavors are traipsing along at a  steady clip.  dgp releases and general bookmaking.  Fall plans for The Aesthetics of Research, some of which actually involve poetry.  Library Fall Reserves processing and it's attendant color coded spreadsheets. Reading submissions for next years chap series (though I am holding off making final decisions til I plot out a schedule of sorts.)  Reading submissions for the mermaid anthology, which I am hoping to have finished by November.

I've also been rather intent on home things lately, including making my awesome Alice table and securing a bar cart (because yes, apparently my vices now require furniture of their own.) Also some new vintage chairs and stools for the dining room (since I've hated the ones that came with my table since like forever.)  A clothes hamper,  A tabletop easel.  All things I usually push down the tiny-disposable-income-to-buy list in favor of dresses but I finally bit the bullet.  (well, there may have been at least one dress.)
