A Patreon postcard tier slot has just become available, in time to get in on September's mailing.

Life update: I lifted myself up Mt. Chocorua today, through the breezeless heat and bugs, revelling in my return to New England after fifteen years of living in West Yorkshire, England. My wife & kids aren't with me yet because the green card system is grinding especially slowly at the moment -- but the mountains are a great place to deposit one's misery. It's the best feeling in the world when you're in it, stomping through the woods & sky. Some pictures on instagram.

I am extremely excited to let you know that Trespasses, my first poetry collection in ten years, is now available from Seven Kitchens Press. This link will take you to the info page where you can read a sample poem, and this link will let you order a copy. This is a limited-run publication, so order quickly if you're interested.

I am happy to share the news that "Trespasses," my first poetry collection in 10 years, will pop into the world next month as a pamphlet from Seven Kitchens Press. More details to follow, but you can have a look at the cover, a scan of 17th century antique endpapers.

For the first time in nearly three years, I've had the chance to visit my old haunts in Massachusetts, seeing friends and family along the way, and always with sketchbook and notebook in my pocket. Over the next couple weeks I will be organizing this material into a few posts for mid and top-tier Patreon supporters. It's a beautiful time in New England, full of blue skies, cold lakes, scratchy purple-brown hills, and strong sunlight scraping over the forest floor.

Happy vernum, everyone!

Howdy, friends. Another postcard tier slots has become available on Patreon if that interests you. How is winter treating you, my fellow northern hemispheriacs? Don't take it personally, the sun does it to all of us.

I hope you are settling down in your den of sticks and leaves, which you have carefully lined with dry grass and little scavenged feathers, where you can curl up and attend to the quiet thrumming of the universe.
