I don’t generally do this sort of thing but I wanted to update you on some exciting things that are abound.
The “Friend(‘)s” page is up and running with an archive of all the guest submissions (we have 2!). Feel free to go to the “Guest Submissions” page at any time and submit a haiku or two (<- rhyme) anonymously or otherwise. This is exciting.
Additionally, Aaron Quinn (also @ BusTown) wrote a (couple of?) piece(s) based on my haiku (and one non-haiku). He is guitarist/new music composer/husband (WHOA!)/friend/ and despite his best efforts otherwise, a super rad guy based in Columbus (but probably not forever). Check out his stuff! More to come on this.
Also, Dan DiPiero and I are planning a series of haiku WITH ILLUSTRATION soon. He is a drummer/new music composer/illustrator/food connoisseur/and author based in the quasi Los Angeles (Cal Arts) area but FROM Cleveland, whom I met in Columbus and hopefully someday soon back in the midwest. I’m not sure what this will be exactly but I’m thinking of calling it “People and Me and People” or something. Get excited and check him out too. I’ve been meaning to collaborate with him for a long time and it should be an exciting venture. More to come on this TOO.
Thank you for reading. Any day I get more than 3 readers I feel lucky and strange. SUBMIT SOMETHING. Loves.
