For any readers (both of you) who noticed I was gone, well, I’m back. I spent last week vacationing on the Isle of Palms near Charleson, SC. In between wave jumping, shell collecting, marsh kayaking and shrimp eating, I did manage to read and write some poetry, but neglected to posting anything interesting here. We were only minutes from the Sullivan’s Island home of novelist Mary Alice Monroe, but she ignored our request for a visit–too busy counting turtle eggs I guess.
Because I’m pretty busy catching up, I’ll just leave you with a few lowcountry poety links.
