Progress Note

I began to write my presentation for the AWP Conference this morning and got about 1,200 words into the essay, finishing up several workable introductory paragraphs (faith and contemporary culture) and a few general thoughts on the poetic image. I have sent away for some material on icons, and will not be able to progress much further until after I receive those books. Perhaps I can jump ahead and explicate the poems I will be writing about, though that is difficult without fully understanding what the icon material will suppy as a "lens" to look into the poems.

I like listening to the BBC-4 on the internet. I wish we had something like it in America.

Weekend NPR is not the same thing.

What about Click and Clack? That's what we listen to on Saturday mornings.

Yes, Click and Clack, poetry of a different sort! I'm looking forward to your presentation. Are you going to mention Click and Clack? I hope so.

No; my presentation will be more like "Wait, Wait, Don't tell Me!"

I love Wait Wait. It alone is worth saturday mornings near a radio.

I AM a geek.
