taking off.

This morning I am off to California again! 
(Yes, yes, I know, I'm spoiled.)

The La Jolla Writers Conference is this weekend and I am absolutely thrilled to be spending three days in my favorite place (San Diego) doing my favorite thing (writing.) There will be workshops, lectures, and classes focusing on the craft and business of writing--and I feel oh-so-giddy just thinking about it. 

Oddly (and awesomely) enough, the conference takes place at Paradise Point, a beautiful resort tucked on away on a private island in the middle of Mission Bay--aka where this picture is taken, aka just across the water from where I lived in college... pretty cool, right?

Wish me luck & hope you're all having a wonderful week!

CHALLENGE and a Windor Mirrow; what do you say? I say: generally, e = mc^(n-1) for the n-dimensional room. I say this is close to self-evident. You think not? Then prove the contrary!




There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.


As a native Swede, I am particularly proud of my love poetry suite Sonnets for Katie.

My Poems


La présence; un coup de vie morte? non, ce n'est qu'être. Et puis pour l'errante fenêtre: étant vue la nuit, dans tous le coins des rues de la veille la même étoile.



Schwarzes birne!

Fremde Gedichte


En el archipielágo del mundo
los recursos son concentrados,

algunos barcos azulos
partieron para la isla más azula.

Uno grito bajo la mesa
vuelca uno cantaro;

visitantes paran
en preguntas silenciosas –

el anacrusa de una tromba
remolinea en la biblioteca.

And: reciprocity: for mutual benefit, you will do me a favor promoting your own blog on mine!

The best way to do it is lining up as a Follower, since then your icon will advertise you indefinitely, and I will follow you in return. Let's forge a mighty alliance of synergy and common interest.
