what a lovely day. not the workday, mind you, I'd been bent over my desk all day re: working. but the weather couldn't be much prettier: highs in the mid-70s F., sunny and clear. what can bloom is busting out and what isn't blossoming can be seen to stretch out into sparks of green. so the poetics of place, of space, come to mind. is there a journal, website, or blog that is a forum for writers to explore, whether in an interview format, or in essays, or poems, these notions. surely, writing is influenced by where and why poets resides. and I don't mean the obvious urban areas, such as SF or NYC, that have really wonderful scenes. there are many, many, many, many and a whole lot of poets who live outside of these two poles on each coast, not even counting the tremendous abundance of good and excellent writing found in Australia, New Zealand, etc. etc. and so on and so forth.

not only are you what you read you are also where you live. a lot, not everyone of course, excepted company excepted, of people have a love/hate relationship with the place they live in. I'm interested in hearing stories on how someone found him/herself in a certain city, community, place, etc. etc. we all can trace the arc of movement, point A to point B, and so on. but the why and how can be made of mystery.
