Greetings. My Flying Islands pocket book is titled TALK MUSIC,  and it appeared in early 2018 (copyright date Dec. 2017).

I spent the Fall 2016 semester in a faculty exchange at the University of Macau, part of a short-lived program between UM and my home university, George Washington University in Washington, DC.

I have now retired from GW, effective Fall 2020, as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic: teaching wholly online, with all its imperfections, seeming like more work than pleasure. I’m still adjusting to my new retired status; one of my strategies for exploring the rest of my life includes reducing my involvement in poetry, though I do hope to return to the endeavor, should I recover the motivation.

The selfie shows me on a recent walk here in Arlington, Virginia, near where Pimmit Run joins the Potomac River.
