Yours truly and Joanna Williams at the North Carolina School Library Media Association Conference conference this weekend. Sums up how I feel toward Ms. J and librarians in general. Thanks, Joanna Gerakios and everybody else, for a great panel and a wonderful time.

Good People, It's Open Studio time of year again and what a year it's been here! Please stop by next weekend and we'll offer you a cuppa cider and fill you in. Mike Roig was down to a near bare yard only weeks ago, but he's refilled it in his customary dynamo fashion, and everything's spinning. I hope to post a few previews this week. http://www.claycarmichael.com/StudioTour.htm

The Rhino Magazine arrives from Germany with my own poem inside!
Boy, do I have a lot of Google translating to do. But what delightful pictures and poems so far and what company I'm in these pages, wow and zounds!
Just a few of my fascinating, offbeat, wildly talented and far-flung fellow rhino poets and translators: Macedonian poet Lidija Dimkovska, Cameroonian writer Patrice Nganang, Hans Christian Anderson Award recipient Jutta Bauer, Julia Donaldson, 2011-2013 British Children's Laureate and MBE; Lebanese writer Jabbour Douaihy, German Jazz Master Eberhard Weber, Algerian author Yasmina Khadra, and three particular favorites: Slovene writer Boris Pahor "internationally most notable for his Holocaust experience described in the novel Necropolis" and who, as notably if you ask me, is 101 years old; Harry Rowohlt, "German writer and translator who also plays the role of a derelict in the famous German weekly soap Lindenstrasse"; and Marianne Koch, retired German actress "best known for her appearances in spaghetti westerns," most famously mit Clint Eastwood in Für eine Handvoll Dollar.
While I brush up on my languages, I leave you with the rhino stylings of National Book Award winning and Ruth Lilly Prize Poet Gerald Stern:
I love rhinos
because they're not winos;
most drunks
are skunks.

Received an illustrated letter-request from Germany today from the Rhino-pupils. Would I write a four-line stanza for them about a rhino? Attached were two examples of author-poems the rhino-poets received from Doris Lessing and Paula Fox. I'm illustrating mine!

This is one of the best things about being an author.
