every time i go out to retrieve the mail, i secretly hope there is a handwritten envelope or a nice looking package waiting there for me. sadly, this is rarely the case. but not today, folks . . . . . . toDAY, i was greeted with a very handsome package all the way from australia. a gift from the amazingly talented kylie johnson. you see, one of the best perks about the blogging world is that you get to meet (cyber-ly) people from all over the globe. one of my favorite blog-friend (blend? frog?) is kylie johnson of paper boat press. we bonded over the similarities, yet dissimilarities, in our clay work.
she just had a book of her own poems published called count me the stars. really beautiful poignant and lovely words. i highly recommend it. you'll want to read the entire book, cover to cover, in ONE sitting.
