Back home

Here is the quick summary of my California roadtrip:

Poems written: None
Furniture sold: None
Caltrain rides: 2
Fun in the sun in Los Gatos: Tons
Pounds gained: 5
Hours in the truck: About 36
Hours that I drove the truck: 2 1/2
Rejections received: 1

I don't know why, but every time I leave town, I count up the number of mail days that I'm gone and anticipate all the poetry mail that I'm going to get. Why would more mail (acceptances or otherwise) arrive just because I'm not here? Silly me.

Back to real world, real life. Time to lose some weight and write some poems!

P.S. A few new Italy and France poems are on the sofa.
