The steady, insidious business of snow. A chickadee lands on a small branch and samples its line of white powder.

OK, so that's a less than ideal form for an update to take. I'll unlink the Morning Porch from Google+ until the Jetpack plugin's auto-post feature improves.

The dispatcher scribbled on the package, 'Thanks for your patience as I scramble to catch up with the sudden influx of chapbook orders'. A good problem. I wish I could boast of similar interest in 'AL'!

I wanted to see if I could make a banjo videopoem without banjo music....
The opening poem in Breakdown: Banjo Poems gets a video at last! And for once, there's no banjo (or banjo-like instrument) in the soundtrack at all.

writer, publisher, bum
Introduction

I'm a writer, editor, and web publisher from the Appalachian Mountains of central Pennsylvania. I aspire to be a good minor poet and a great reader. These days I guess I'm most widely known as the curator of Moving Poems, a daily compendium of poetry videos from around the web. I'm the sole reporter at the hyperlocal microblog The Morning Porch, a daily account of what I see and hear from my front porch in 140 or fewer characters. I've been blogging since 2003 at Via Negativa.
